    Fifty-one percent of liberals and 45 percent of Democrats told a pollster that too few of their fellow Americans are willing to fill construction, technology, hospitality, and other service jobs, regardless of pay. From June 23 to June 28, Rasmussen asked its panel of 1,500 likely voters: People say immigrants fill construction, technology, hospitality and other service jobs that Americans don’t want. Are there Americans who would take those jobs if pay and working conditions were improved or are there just not enough Americans willing to do that kind of work? Most Americans recognized that their fellow citizens would work...

    U.S. stock-index futures added to gains on Thursday after a closely followed report on the health of the labor market showed that the U.S. added 4.76 million jobs in June and the unemployment fell to 11.1% from 13.3% in May, suggesting that the employment picture is improving after a stunning collapse due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Economists polled by MarketWatch had predicted 3.7 million jobs were created or restored in June, with some estimates ranging as high as 8 million.

    “You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards.” - Steve Jobs Steve Jobs, true life hero of millennials, made this comment as part of his 2005 Stanford Commencement address. He advised the newly minted grads to pay attention to their intuition, pursue their passion, and use both to discover what they were good at. Unfortunately by 2005 college grads were ill-equipped to understand his fairly simple message. They got the part about following their heart – they’d been told that from the time they were in pre-school. What they didn’t get was the...

    President Donald Trump is preparing to direct the federal government to overhaul its hiring to prioritize a job applicant’s skills over a college degree, administration and industry officials say. Trump is set to sign an executive order Friday outlining a new direction for the nation’s largest employer during a meeting of the board that advises the administration on worker policy. Ivanka Trump, the president’s daughter and adviser, is co-chair of the American Workforce Policy Advisory Board and has worked on improving job training to meet employers’ changing needs. The federal government is the nation’s largest employer with 2.1 million civilian...

    Looks like Steve Mnuchin didn’t entirely buy the idea that the country’s economic woes over the COVID-19 pandemic and shutdown are over, either. Nor should he, as today’s weekly initial jobless claims report attests. Despite the surprising return to work shown in May, new jobless claims continued at pre-COVID-19 record levels, although still slowing: In the week ending June 6, the advance figure for seasonally adjusted initial claims was 1,542,000, a decrease of 355,000 from the previous week’s revised level. The previous week’s level was revised up by 20,000 from 1,877,000 to 1,897,000. The 4-week moving average was 2,002,000,...

    A surprise gain in jobs reported on Friday is likely to slow momentum for another round of major fiscal relief from Congress. Stephen Moore, an outside adviser to President Trump and a contributor to the Washington Examiner, said that Friday’s jobs report should lead Congress not to pursue further relief. “After the jobs report this morning, I think the White House and Congress are going to really reconsider the need for any kind of spending and probably kills the idea of the 'blue state bailout,'" Moore told the Washington Examiner. Chuck Grassley, the Republican chairman of the Senate Finance Committee,...

    May’s jobs numbers released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics Friday shocked economists, who expected something starkly different from the 2.5 million payrolls added and lower 13.3% unemployment rate. Economists estimated that the country would lose 7.5 million jobs. The unemployment rate was expected to hit 19%. In notes circulating following the release, dumbfounded economists struggled to get their jaws off the ground. “In one line: Rather startling,” wrote Pantheon’s Ian Shepherdson. “The biggest payroll surprise in history, by a gigantic margin.” ING’s chief international economist James Knightley called the report "simply astonishing." “Somehow the US jobs market has come...

  • Biden Says Trump Administration Deserves 'No Credit' for Economic Recovery

    Former Vice President Joe Biden addressed the job and unemployment numbers released on Friday afternoon in a livestream from Delaware. In a shocking glimpse of recovery, the economy added 2.5 million jobs in May and the unemployment decreased to 13.3 percent. While these shocking numbers should instill hope for economic recovery, Biden used them to criticize the Trump administration. Biden, who has spent much of the last few months in the basement of his Delaware home, claimed that President Trump is hiding in the bunker, and that the president cannot take credit for the positive economic numbers because “only...

    The Bureau of Labor Statistics’ May Employment Situation report shows that the United States economy added 2.5 million jobs last month, and the unemployment rate fell from 14.7 percent to 13.3 percent.Employment increased significantly in leisure and hospitality (1.2 million), construction (464,000), education and health services (424,000), retail trade (368,000), and manufacturing (225,000). These job gains surprised forecasters, given many States were only beginning to reopen their economies during the reports’ survey reference periods (the week/pay period that includes May 12). The median of all private sector forecasts predicted 7.5 million job losses in May and an unemployment rate of...

    The Washington Post was blasted on social media after it jumped the gun with an inaccurate tweet Friday claiming the May U.S. unemployment rate was close to 20 percent, moments after the actual report indicated the rate unexpectedly had dropped to 13.3 percent. “Grim milestone to be reached as May unemployment rate nears 20 percent,” the Post wrote in a now-deleted tweet to accompany a now-edited story with the same inaccurate headline. May’s 13.3 is significantly down from a record high in April, indicating the nation's economy is recovering faster than expected from the coronavirus lockdown – but it appears...

    VIDEO There was quite a bit of shock today when it was announced that the unemployment rate DECLINED in May despite most economists predicting it would rise to 20%. Here are a few shocked reactions to the May jobs report. My favorite reaction is from the angry guy who is whining that the unemployment really rose but that the stats were faked by the Labor Department.

    CNN opted not to air President Trump's remarks on Friday's surprise jobs report showing 2.5 million jobs were added to the economy in May, with MSNBC carrying the comments partially, and Fox News, ABC, NBC and CBS carrying the speech from the Rose Garden in full. The president was in a celebratory mood following the report that the unemployment rate dropped from 14.7 percent in April to 13.3 percent in May. Analysts had expected the report would show unemployment rising to as high as 20 percent, and the new figures suggested an economic rebound could come more quickly. Stocks jumped...
