The August jobs report was just released, and in Bidenesque fashion, the numbers were dismal. I suspect the illegitimate president will need a few more little girls to sniff this weekend.
Job creation for August was a huge disappointment, with the economy adding just 235,000 positions, the Labor Department reported Friday.
Economists surveyed by Dow Jones had been looking for 720,000 new hires.
So, do you miss President Trump yet? His unemployment numbers were always high.
The unemployment rate dropped to 5.2% from 5.4%, in line with estimates.
August’s total — the worst since January — comes with heightened fears of the pandemic and the impact that rising Covid cases could have on what has been a mostly robust recovery.
I’m not buying this for a second. We’ve been suffering through this pandemic for a year and a half, and with the exception of the hard left, everyone else is living their lives. The problem is no one wants a job because the government is paying people to stay home.
