As is typical these num era do not include those won have fallen out of the system. Mea ing this whose benefits have ended and are still jobless.

The available jobs are largely low wage jobs and gig economy jobs.

Yes it does. The number being quoted is the number of Americans filing new claims for unemployment compensation. To do so the person filing the claim had to have lost their job within a specified number of weeks before they file.

This is not true. Wages are up among all demographics but especially for lower wage jobs.

FFS…. You are the resident expert on crappy jobs .!.

Having worked my share for crappy wages, I don’t begrudge people getting paid better wages.

There’s a problem with that? Or more jobs? You’re against job and wage growth?

You’re against job and wage growth?

If it was done by Biden, then yes, he/she is automatically against it. Such is the perverse mindset of the modern libertarian conservative.

Remember the Obama recovery? Longest job growth expansion in history, improved employment opportunities, wages up, and household debt down sharply? They absolutely hated that.
