As your "reliable source" states:

Your reliable source does not say 350,000 people stopped looking for work!
And your reliable source is wrong to say 315,000 people stopped looking for work. The workforce declined 315,000 which doesn't mean they stopped looking for work!
And if you're going to blame the drop in unemployment because of the decline in the workforce, you'll have to explain how it was the unemployment rate dropped from 9.1% in April, when the workforce was 462,000 lower than it is now!

But it could also be some temporary hiring for Christmas that will not last.
