Unemployment Gets Bad News Under Biden

Unemployment has risen for the first time in over a year, signaling bad news for the “resurgent” Biden economy.

According to The Washington Free Beacon:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. job growth unexpectedly slowed in April, likely restrained by worker shortages that have left businesses scrambling to meet booming demand as the economy reopens amid rapidly improving public health and massive financial help from the government.

The Labor Department’s closely watched employment report on Friday, which showed a plunge in temporary help jobs – a harbinger for future hiring – as well as decreases in manufacturing and retail employment, could sharpen criticism of generous unemployment benefits.

The enhanced jobless benefits, including a government-funded $300 weekly supplement, pay more than most minimum-wage jobs. The unemployment benefits were extended as part of a massive $1.9 trillion COVID-19 pandemic relief package approved in March.

Nonfarm payrolls increased by only 266,000 jobs last month. Data for March was revised down to show 770,000 jobs added instead of 916,000 as previously reported. Economists polled by Reuters had forecast payrolls would advance by 978,000 jobs.

Employment is 8.2 million jobs below the peak employment rate that happened in February of 2022.

We have a very rough year and a half ahead of us, till November 2022.
He’s destroying the country in a very methodical way. So much coming at us like a fire hose, hard to keep up.
But, we need the stay strong and prevail. Looks like survival of the fittest.

It is not financial help from the government – it is from the taxpayers like every dollar the government appropriates – good or bad – and they have always been thoroughly wasteful – but not near what they are under this Baffoon’s administration who will leave us eating Biden’s dust if we cannot control him.

This is the goal of this socialist/communist administration. Be dependent on the government to give you everything you need. Vote Republican i. 2022 to get our Country back.

We have become the land of the Controlled! Controlled Elections, Controlled Sports, Controlled Horse Races, Controlled Corporations, Controlled Face Masks, Controlled Teachers. America has lost its Freedom. The only place there are no controls are at our borders where immigrants are clamoring to break through to become victims of systemic racism and white supremacy.

This guy and his entire Administration NEED TO GO NOW! they are destroying our Country on daily and NO ONE of them is or will be assuming any responsibility for any of it. Good going Americans your Country will be NO different than Central and South America very soon. Trust me I came from one of those S**t holes and the direction this administration has taken resembles what I’ve lived in the late 1950’s and 1960. What a SHAME! people do NOT allow this to continue, you will NOT recognize our Beautiful America very soon. Good Luck to us ALL.

Biden can and wil blame anything he wants on President Trump and the media and Democrats will back him to the hilt. Biden’s lies are the media’s fake news and the Democrat’s propaganda.

Biden had the nerve to blame it on Trump because Trump didn’t let in enough illegals into the US. Since so many illegals are children, Biden must want child labor camps.

There is a s nothing resurgent about Bozo Biden’s economy: the stock market is down, employment is down, wages are down, retirement account values down, prices up, inflation up, unemployment up, welfare costs up, crime up, taxes up, regulation up, government debt way up. Biden will be remembered as a complete asshole and communist puppet.
