Nearly 4.8M Jobs Added To Economy In June, Just Before Surge In New COVID-19 Infections

Published

President Trump has reason to celebrate this week as a new report from the Labor Department is stating that almost 4.8 million jobs have been added to the economy in June, just before the surge in new cases of coronavirus hit, dropping the unemployment rate to 11.1 percent.

This is fantastic news that far surpasses what forecasters had expected. In fact, these numbers have set a brand new record. Unfortunately, much of this is clouded by the fact that there are now new cases of COVID-19 starting to hit states across the country.

Here’s more on this report from The Washington Examiner:

“Looking beyond the June employment data, worrisome signs have emerged in recent days regarding a pullback in store traffic and spending likely linked to the resurgence of COVID-19,” said Mark Hamrick, a senior economic analyst at Bankrate.com. “While the economy is widely thought to be rebounding now that we’ve quietly slipped into the third quarter, the strength and sustainability of the rebound remain at risk.”

Perhaps most troubling, Thursday’s report showed a higher number, 2.8 million, of job losses described as permanent. In previous months of the pandemic, around 90% of job losses had been described as temporary, suggesting that the workers hoped to go back to their old jobs once the pandemic passed.

Nearly two-fifths of the new jobs being added to the June report are in the leisure and hospitality industries, both of which had taken a massive beating from the lockdowns at the height of the pandemic. These jobs are still being threatened, however, due to the rise of new cases of this horrific virus that just doesn’t seem to want to go away.

Employment in retail rose by 740,000 last month, after a gain of 372,000 in May and losses totaling 2.4 million in March and April combined. On net, employment in this sector is 1.3 million lower than in February.

As Americans, we need to be doing everything we can to ensure that we are slowing the spread of the virus, such as following social distancing practices when possible, so that we can prevent the need for a second shutdown, something that would no doubt destroy our fragile economy.

Some folks are really throwing a fit over wearing a mask, which is understandable in areas where the practice is being mandated by government, but perhaps, with cases on the rise, we should consider taking it upon ourselves to go ahead and put one on in certain situations in public.

Who knows if they really work or not, but at the same time, we must do anything it takes to not allow things to shut back down again. Here’s to hoping this nonsense comes to an end soon so we can just get back to living life without any of these things being necessary.

Save conservative media!

Tucker Carlson: ‘Damning’ Evidence Against Hunter Biden ‘Vanished’ After Being Sent To Me

Sounds peculiar!

During his Wednesday evening show, Tucker Carlson dropped a bombshell regarding the Biden crime family. No need to chit-chat. Let’s just get right into it. From Fox News: Tucker didn’t describe the documents other than to say they were damning, and that they came from a new source and related to the Biden crime family. Tucker received word that the documents had been sent to him while he was in LA interviewing Tony Bobulinski for yesterday’s blockbuster interview. He asked his producer in New York to send them to him as quick as he could. Tucker said they used a very comment package courier, one that we would all be familiar with, but that the document never arrived.

Biden’s Brother Confronted About Family’s Foreign Biz Deals, Walks Inside & Won’t Answer

Typical.

A book that was released not too long ago details how multiple members of the Biden family became rich thanks to Joe’s position as vice president of the United States. In other words, Joe leveraged his public position as one of the most powerful men in the world to his advantage, which in turn benefitted his relatives. When confronted on Wednesday evening, Jim Biden was virtually speechless. From Fox News: EXCLUSIVE: Jim Biden, the brother of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, refused to answer questions Wednesday when approached by Fox News outside a house in Maryland about claims the former vice president had knowledge about the family’s overseas business ventures. Approached at a residence on the Eastern Shore, Jim Biden repeatedly rebuffed questions in his driveway as Fox News asked questions from a distance in the street. CONTINUED: “I don’t want to comment about anything,” Jim Biden said. Asked if he cared to answer questions, Biden said: “Nope.” What more do Democrats need to know about Joe and his corrupt family? Are there any gaffes, racial or just plain ignorant, that he has yet to make? Has he done anything to benefit America during his decades in public service? Come on, people. Get over the hatred of Trump so America can finally move forward.
