This is absolutely horrifying. I have no words. "The latest Labor Department figures, from April, show that 48.8 percent of black adults were employed, tying two months in the early 1980s for the worst rate on record."
Remember when Donald Trump claimed the falling unemployment numbers under President Obama were "a complete fraud" being manipulated by the Labor Department? https://t.co/VaWxyRP1S0
An IG announced his retirement this week. After weeks of Trump’s attacks on and ousting of IGs, he had to clarify that he was not asked to resign.
Jobs reports are out and Trump now has the Labor Department cooking the books and gaslighting America.
Jobless claims in the millions per week, yet the unemployment rate “dropped” to 14%??
This Administration is now a full blast propaganda regime.
Employment stunningly rose by 2.5 million in May and the jobless rate declined to 13.3% according to data Friday from the Labor Department that was far better than economists had been expecting: @CNBC
Two weeks ago- to cook the books you have to heat up the pan first....
Labor Department asked states to delay releasing increased unemployment numbers: report https://t.co/jlpDxJ3wuE
The Labor Department is purposefully releasing altered data. I know someone who works in the Department of Labor and she told me these numbers have been altered "at the top" to benefit Trump.
Anyone believing the 13.3% unemployment rate now-described by trump's labor department?
So far at least @NBCNews
is parroting the story without question.
U.S. unemployment rate seen near 20% as COVID slams jobs market again in May https://t.co/RyGdw60pQL
It appears trump's Labor Department took his #blacksharpie to today's unemployment results of 13.3% for May - in contrast to unemployment claims topping 40 million this week. https://t.co/7nH75FGPz2
Topping 40 million so far- how did the Labor Department come up with today's 13.3% unemployment rate without a skillet being utilized?
Around 1.8 million Americans filed for first-time unemployment last week, continuing downward trend https://t.co/BB1WAYKBBW
Sources in D.C. say Trump has been "bullying" statisticians in the Labor Department with their jobs for months, in order to "cook the books" for Trump's reelection. E-mails areforthcoming...
The US economy regained 2.5 million jobs in May as coronavirus pandemic shutdowns began to ease, sending the unemployment rate falling to 13.3%, according to the latest announcement by the Labor Department.
The Labor Department’s closely watched employment report on Friday showed the jobless rate falling to 13.3% last month from 14.7% in April. https://t.co/7eNj7rEUtV
And Eugene Scalia’s Department of Labor has made way for 401(k) plans to include private equity funds (because that’s what we need right now, more money and power for private equity)
's statement on the giveaway:
Narrator: "And on July 15, they found out that Trump's Labor Department started reporting false employment numbers in June."
You know that's coming. You just fucking know that is what will be coming.
My sources in D.C.say tRump has been bullying Labor Department to "cook the books" or lose their job. An E-mail says unemployment is at least 3.7% higher cause of some phony COVID metric used in May.
@espinaDuran @fred_guttenberg @ChrisDJackson
It only covers through May 12th for “new” jobs. Philadelphia New Jersey and New York are still on lockdown. How are these numbers possible? Trump threatened the weather service who among us thinks he wouldn’t strong arm the labor department? A reminder..HE WILL DO ANYTHING!
Please, Trump already told the labor department what to say and put in the statistics. obviously nothing has been created, some people returned to their regular jobs. #FactCheck #facisttrump
"One caveat noted by the U.S. Labor Department: the unemployment rate “would have been about 3 percentage points higher than reported” if data were reported correctly, according to the agency’s statement."
