Whoa! Black Unemployment Rate Hits LOWEST in History

Under the presidential leadership of Donald Trump, the black American unemployment rate has hit a staggeringly low of 6.8 percent. In fact, this is the lowest that has ever been recorded!

Previous to this point, the last time there was a record low was in 2000, and at that time it was 7.4 percent.

Breitbart reports: 

The government has been tracking unemployment by race for 45 years, since 1972.

The Hispanic unemployment rate remains at a near record low of just 4.9 percent, up just a bit from the record of 4.7 percent in November of last year.

White unemployment sits at 3.7 percent, while only 2.5 percent of Asians are unemployed.

Overall, unemployment in America is at 4.1 percent, as thousands of jobs have been created since Trump took office.

Not only have the unemployment rates dropped but the average hourly earnings have gone up 2.5 percent since last year.

The number of jobs created in December was 148,000, which is lower than expected. Jobs are the lagging indicator in any economy, so with all the other numbers moving up, hopefully job creation will soon follow.

With unemployment so low, job growth should mean wage gains. More jobs than people looking for them puts employees in the driver’s seat. Also good news for workers is the Trump administration’s crackdown on illegal immigration. This can only mean better wages and more job opportunities, especially for unskilled, entry, and blue-collar workers — those who have been left behind more than any other group.

I bet you won’t hear anything about this on CNN! Anytime there is good news, especially if shows that Trump is doing something right, the mainstream media tends to conveniently overlook it.
