One CNA Report But Two Different Set of Numbers

Thanks to Pseudonymity for bringing up this apparent disparity in his blog here.

Yesterday, CNA broadcasted/posted a report titled Middle class wage stagnation could lead to social instability.

One version of the report says 123,000 jobs were created last year and economists estimate some 70 percent of these jobs went to foreigners. (See also SEW’s post)

In the other version of the same report, it’s 124,000 jobs were created last year and economists estimate some 45 percent of these jobs went to foreigners.

There are no other changes in the report except for this one line.

So which is which - Did 70% of 123,000 OR 45% of 124,000 jobs go to foreigners last year??
