Coronavirus Pandemic Crushes Economy With Historic 20.5M Job Loss In April

Published

While thousands of people have been hit hard by the coronavirus that has invaded our country for the last several months, it seems our national economy has been smacked just as hard. According to new reports from the Labor Department, our economy lost 20.5 million jobs in the month of April, a truly historic number.

The unemployment rate shot up to 14.7 percent in April, which was up 4.4 percent from the numbers we had in March.

However, President Trump had a conversation with Fox News and stated the number of lost jobs was “totally expected.” The president also went on to state that he would “bring it back,” referencing the economy and all of the lost jobs.

Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner:

Unemployment rates rose to record highs across most categories of workers, including for men, women, teenagers, whites, Hispanics, and Asians. Almost two-thirds of all jobless workers consider themselves to be temporarily unemployed and hope to return to their jobs soon, illustrating the danger facing the country if the pandemic is not controlled and workers cannot take back their old jobs.

Friday’s report is the worst on record. The federal government has never reported more monthly job losses since it began charting them in 1939. There has also not been a higher monthly unemployment rate since it began tracking it in 1948. The highest annual unemployment rate was 24.9% in 1933, during the Great Depression.

The number of jobs we lost in April actually exceeds the number of jobs that have been created in our country since 1998. Let that fact sink in a little bit. Our economy is absolutely being ravaged by COVID-19 and the measures being taken to try and shut it down.

A lot of different industries have been hit by this, but the two who have taken the most damage are travel and tourism. There have been massive numbers of flight cancellations, hotels shutting down, and attractions shutting their doors due to the spread of the coronavirus.

This is set to cause a loss of 8 million jobs in those sectors alone, here in the United States, and a staggering 100 million around the world.

And then there’s the restaurant industry, which is projected to lose out on $80 billion in sales by the end of April.

This is why so many people are calling for local governments to start reopening businesses. The economy is edging closer and closer to collapse and that would be more life threatening for all of us than COVID-19.

Here’s to hoping we avoid that mess and get our nation back on track.

Texas Senator Ted Cruz (R) took a trip with his family to Cancun, Mexico as the Lone Star State was getting plastered with snow and things were falling apart. The optics weren’t the best. Cruz admitted he made a mistake and returned home the next day. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) has been accused of sexually harassing three women. As you might expect, the far-left radicals at CNN want the uninformed to believe that Cruz’s error is a bigger deal than Cuomo’s. LOOK: https://twitter.com/tomselliott/status/1366427159657611267 Here’s a better look… From Fox News: A third woman has accused New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo of unwanted advances. According to The New York Times, 33-year-old Anna Ruch has claimed that Cuomo asked to kiss her at a wedding in 2019. In an interview Monday, she specified that Cuomo put his hand on her bare lower back.
