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.

WATCH: College Students Not Cheering for Team USA in Olympics Because America is Evil

A recent video of students at the University of South Florida found that many of them aren’t rooting for Team USA at the Olympics simply because they hate America. This is what our schools are teaching our kids to think, folks. From the lowest to the highest grades, our system of miseducation is teaching kids that America is evil and not worth supporting. Some of these woke, anti-American students spoke to Campus Reform ahead of the opening ceremony of the Wokeyo Olympics. And they said they won’t be watching because America isn’t worth rooting for. These privileged, hate-filled leftists said that they aren’t rooting for America: “I’m not going to be rooting for any team just because it’s some country that I live in…because the truth is, patriotism shouldn’t be that strong,” one student said. Another student said, “if you would’ve asked me in the last administration, maybe not.” Students also told Jacobson that they believed athletes should be able to protest during the Olympic Games and that U.S. athletes have no duty to represent the country in a positive light. One student said, “they have a duty to represent their country athletically, but they don’t have any obligation to represent it good or bad.” “I’m not proud to live in a country where I can’t even go down in my own neighborhood [without seeing] people putting up their Blue Lives Matter flags telling me that my life doesn’t matter,” another student said. “Given what’s been going on with this country and how divided our politics have been, there’s not really a reason to stand for one within the country, anyways,” a student exclaimed.

Wokesters Now Say You are a Racist if You Fear Pit Bull Dogs

In today’s episode of “You Stinkin’ Racist,” woke fanatics are now saying you are a racist if you fear the dangerous pit bull dog. The leftist activists at the Animal Farm Foundation recently declared that you are a racist if you fear pit bulls because the pit bull is “the black man’s dog” since it is popular with blacks. The non-profit claims that it is “dedicated to securing equal treatment and opportunity for pit bull dogs and their owners,” and aims to fight against “exclusionary dog breed restrictions in the housing insurance industry.” In other words, the group wants to smooth the way for pit bulls and their owners. The group also relies heavily on a “study” by Harvard Law School’s Ann Linder who wrote a paper titled “The Black Man’s Dog: The Social Context of Breed Specific Legislation.” Linder says that the pit bull has been “gang violence by urban youths, as well as the hip-hop music scene.” However, the pit bull has a bad reputation because it is a dangerous animal. Campus Reform pointed out that pit bulls represent about 6.5% of all dogs in the United States, yet the breed was responsible for 66% of total fatal dog attacks between 2005 and 2017. Oh, but it’s all about racism, you see. You don’t fear pit bulls because the breed is powerful and dangerous. No, you fear pit bulls because you are a racist. The left is never happy unless it is re-fashion reality to its fantasy world. Follow Warner Todd Huston on Facebook at: facebook.com/Warner.Todd.Huston.
