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.

Biden White House Limiting Press Access By Requiring $170 Covid-19 Testing Fees (Details)

If President Trump did anything remotely close to what Biden is doing regarding limiting the press’ access to him, he would’ve been impeached a third time. Must be nice to have the mainstream media on your side! From New York Post: WASHINGTON — The White House is imposing a new $170 COVID-19 testing fee on reporters who want to access the West Wing, in what critics say is the latest step that constrains press coverage of President Biden. The Biden administration already imposed sweeping restrictions, including capping at 80 the number of pre-approved journalists who are able to access White House grounds on a given day — each of whom must take a COVID-19 rapid test before 1 p.m. CONTINUED: Under former President Donald Trump, any reporter with a “hard pass” was able to breeze past the White House gates at any time and without taking a coronavirus test. But few abused the privilege due to peer pressure to limit visits. The latest restrictions were announced in an on-the-record email from White House Correspondents’ Association President Zeke Miller, who is a reporter for The Associated Press.

Anybody who believes that police officers are doing anything other than keeping our streets safe and arresting criminals is completely delusional. All you have to do, you know, if you don’t want to be shot by a cop, is cooperate with instructions. Why is that such a difficult concept for liberals to understand? From The Daily Wire: Los Angeles County’s new top prosecutor has made another controversial move that has angered local law enforcement unions. According to FOX 11, “Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón is under scrutiny after he hired a public defender who helped with his campaign to a high-ranking prosecutor position in his administration.” The outlet reports that Tiffany Blacknell “has in the past posted anti-police comments on social media,” which first surfaced last year. CONTINUED: Investigative reporter Bill Melugin posted screenshots of Ms. Blacknell’s previous comments disparaging law enforcement to Twitter earlier this week. Blacknell has referred to LAPD officers as “barbarians” and called for the abolition of prisons. Melugin also shared a photograph of Blacknell posing with D.A. Gascón and another showing Blacknell donning a t-shirt that read, “The Police Are Trained To Kill Us.” According to Melugin, “the former public defender posted on Facebook during the series of looting[s] that took place in May 2020 that she herself was a looter during the 1992 Rodney King riots.” https://twitter.com/BillFOXLA/status/1364787696418217988?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1364787696418217988%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fl-a-s-new-controversial-d-a-hires-prosecutor-who-suggested-cops-are-trained-to-kill-us https://twitter.com/NiggaTheory/status/1306977001857638400?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1306977001857638400%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fl-a-s-new-controversial-d-a-hires-prosecutor-who-suggested-cops-are-trained-to-kill-us
