When the latest jobs report hit, the number was about 40 percent of projections.
Needless to say, the numbers were highly disappointing.
Biden tried to put a good spin on them, but Labor Secretary Marty Welsh has a far more honest assessment.
Just Not Good
With projections of about 500,000 new jobs, it looked like Biden might actually have the heat taken off him for a few days on the jobs front.
When the number came in at 194,000, it created yet another wave of panic.
Keep in mind, we have vaccine mandates that are about to come to fruition in the private and federal job sectors, which could literally leave hundreds of thousands of workers unemployed.
Come November, in the military alone, we could see hundreds of thousands of jobs lost.
Biden could literally be facing negative numbers, which would be devastating to the economy overall.
While Joe Biden tried to put a positive spin on this debacle, Walsh at least offered some truth.
He stated, “There’s no question that we have work to do. Number one, we’re still living with a pandemic, it’s a worldwide pandemic.
“Also, people concerned about the Delta variant, people concerned about their personal health. We have folks that are vaccinated, folks that aren’t vaccinated, people who are vaccinated worried about the people that aren’t vaccinated.”
Even with that small taste of honesty, there are mistruths, or at the very least, some twisted facts.
Yes, we are still in the middle of a pandemic, but states like Florida and Texas have proven this pandemic is no longer an obstacle to firing up the economy and getting businesses back open.
For the most part, I can tell you from first-person experience, Texas is 100 percent normal again.
Positive cases are down, hospitalizations are waning, businesses are open, nary a mask in sight, and concerts and sporting events are at full capacity, and this with only half the state vaccinated.
As bad as labor numbers are right now, I fear this is only the tip of the iceberg if Biden holds firm on these mandates.
The only real solace we have right now is that Joe Biden is wreaking havoc on the Democrat Party, ensuring a massive red tsunami hits much earlier than we could have possibly anticipated.
