Dems Lower Unemployment; GOP Increases Unemployment


Recommended Posts

303,000 new jobs added to US economy in March, dropping unemployment to 3.8%. Under Joe Biden, America is in the longest stretch of sustained sub-4% unemployment in over fifty years.  
 

Unemployment under President Trump was 15%.

Trump can move numbers down, though, like his stock price, which is dropping like a rock. Trump Media is by far the most expensive stock to short on Wall Street.

I hope these new jobs are effectively combating Joe Biden's inflation. 

What do you think, democrats? Are they?

From a very high level, this Libbie/Conservative culture war can be summarized as those who see reality and trust their senses, and those who see reality but choose to believe excuses and warped narratives.

I haven't figured out why so many would freak out like this all at once...but this age (roughly 2000 years) is closing. This is gonna sound a tad "flighty" but...every time history records a shift in the ages, humans freak out. 

So I'm-a-gonna go look at some new irons now, and try to ignore the "magnetically challenged".

That is a lie and the source is a lie. It  has been caught in LIES before.

Shutting down the economy, forcing small businesses to lay off their employees, then allowing them to hire those employees back does NOT constitute positive employment numbers.

Before the Obama Virus, Trump's policies brought in high paying MANUFACTURING JOBS and America's employment numbers were the highest of all.

You might as well go to reliable sources, and not the Nazi rags.

The White House said in a statement the end of last month: “With a 50-year-low unemployment rate of 3.5 percent and 1 million more job openings than job seekers, the ratio of respondents who say jobs are ‘plentiful’ compared to those who say jobs are ‘hard to get’ is more than 4:1.”

A robust U.S. economy  has proved solid and durable, and Trump has used that to his advantage.

The tweet continued: “African-American Unemployment is the LOWEST in the history of our Country, by far. Also, best Poverty, Youth, and Employment numbers, ever. Great!”

In December, the unemployment rate held steady at 3.5 percent, signaling that the job market remains strong at the start of 2020 -- even if hiring and wage gains have slowed somewhat more than a decade into an economic expansion.

For the year of 2019, employers added an average of roughly 175,000 jobs per month, compared with about 223,250 per month in 2018.

The U.S. economy added 2.1 million jobs last year, down from gains of nearly 2.7 million in 2018. Hiring may have slowed because the number of unemployed people seeking work has fallen by 540,000 people over the past year to 5.75 million. With fewer unemployed people hunting for jobs, there is a potential limit on job gains.

And then it all fell apart due to Trump's totally INCOMPETENT management of the COVID pandemic, when he tried to pretend COVOD wasn't dangerous and CAUSED many SUPER-SPREADER EVENTS that made the pandemic as horrible as it was.

1. See unmasked campaign rally events.

2. See travel "bans" that allowed 10s of thousands of unmasked travelers to fly back to the US without testing, tracking nor quarantine.

3. See Woodward interview TAPES on which Trump admitted his public statements were LIES.

Excuse me, but THAT is a lie as well. And it is the OBAMA VIRUS epidemic, since  Obama was responsible for the creation of the lab that produced that virus.

And you are clearly the dumbest human  on the  planet if you think masks stopped everything.

I don't see any masks on THESE animals.

Migrants take part in a caravan towards the border with the United States in Tapachula, Chiapas State, Mexico, on Dec. 24, 2023.

 

And Unelected Joe invited these animals to come here and register Demonazi.

Those stats only account for direct employees. For example they wouldn't account for independent branches such as the military, who employs about the same number of 'federal' employees listed in your link by itself.  There are dozens of departments and such that would not be calculated in that number at all. Yet their pay does come from the gov't - the army isn't privately funded :)

So if you thought you were accurately showing the number of people paid by the gov't, you were wrong.

Highest actually. Add it up for the last few years and compare it to others and you'll see that i'ts been REALLY bad.

That's why people are furious with joe. Unfortunately you can't eat lies.

Doesn't really matter by itself. Inflation is cumulative.  For example - if inflation went up 10 percent last year then a 100 dollar item now costs110.  If it then goes up 1 percent this year, that item now costs 111.10.   It didn't go down in price just because inflation did. So the average inflation over those two years would still be 5.05, and if wages didn't go up as much that means people still afford less and go hungry.

2. Yes they are. Just because a whore like you has infinite patience for the world's most destructive government, doesn't mean we all have to be patient - that's why we vote; so we can bounce the hair sniffer's ass out of office this November.

That fat orange tub of lard is going to keel over from a heart attack long before we lose Joe Biden. Biden’s health is clearly better than FatMan’s.
