The establishment media did not blame President Biden Friday’s report on underperforming jobs. Biden had promised that he would create jobs in 2020 and stop the virus. However, the establishment media did not mention Biden’s responsibility for December’s poor job report. This was due in large part to the ever-raging virus as well as the subsequent cumbersome guidelines on health.
In an article entitled “U.S. Jobs Report”, the Wall Street Journal stated that December’s slowing in hiring was a sign of the economic recovery. The December Jobs Report shows that gains have slowed to 199,000
The New York Times did not mention Biden’s economic mismanagement or pandemic. Instead, it blamed the rampant coronavirus and anemic jobs report on the rampant coronavirus in an article entitled, “The U.S. added 192k jobs in December. A weak rise before Omicron’s grip.”
The Times reported that America’s slowdown in hiring continued in December, as employers struggled for workers even before the new threat of the coronavirus — underscoring a turbulent path ahead as the economy enters 2020.
The headline of the Washington Post was similar: “U.S. The December employment figures for the United States were just 199,000, and this was before the omicron surge.
The Post didn’t blame Biden for the report on poor jobs, nor did it report that Biden had failed to close down the omicron version. However, the paper did cite polling showing that Americans are dissatisfied with Biden’s economic performance.
The story said that the new labor market numbers were released as polls continue showing voters disapprove of President Biden’s economic handling, as concerns over inflation and labor shortages outweigh other achievements.
Biden’s economy added only 199,000 jobs in December. This is well below the 422,000 predicted predictions. Breitbart News reported:
In recent months, U.S. employers have attempted to hire workers at an unprecedented rate. In November, more than 10 million jobs were available. This was when an unprecedented number of workers left their jobs. The unemployment rate is down faster than expected.
The virus has made it more difficult to hire workers. Some may not want to return to work in person because of fear of infection, or to avoid the need to be vaccinated. Some Americans may find it less appealing to work due to the high inflation rates over the past decade. This reduces a worker’s wage value.
