The US Department of Labor’s jobs report was released on Friday with an astoundingly low overall new jobs number with only 194,000 jobs.
The Biden administration, the establishment news media, and the institutional Left have proffered mostly spin in response. They have also seized on the bad economic news to polish the proposed stimulus and social spending bills still in the political waiting room.
Conservatives in media, economics, politics and elsewhere have noted the countless policy whiffs and foul balls by Biden and Democratic leadership that contributed.
Parent and caregiver demands for childcare also played a part. In part from a crystal-ball style scheduling of returns to in-person learning on the part of school administrators. Additionally, the nature of remote work, growing philosophical contrasts between generations of workers, and lingering COVID entanglements were also part of the problem.
In a recent interview, economics magnate and magazine publisher Steve Forbes noted the unwise play calling on the part of the Biden team including…
– Contrived constraints on the economy: vaccine mandates by numerous large-scale employers encouraged by Biden messaging
– Huge challenge in shifting a global economy from first gear back into overdrive
– Biden team signaling a beefing up of IRS monitoring of everyday Americans’ bank accounts
In a final layer of irony, the sector dragging down the jobs report that offset over 300,000 new private sector jobs was the government sector. This sector has long been a bedrock Democratic voting bloc.
