“Sempre,” il post si vantava.
Il grafico – apparso su Twitter, Instagram e Facebook – è stato pubblicato poche ore dopo che un rapporto di lavoro deludente ha mostrato che le assunzioni erano scese molto al di sotto delle aspettative a dicembre.
While the numbers from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics appeared to be accurate, the raw data failed to show important context.
The talking point that Biden has created more jobs than any other president is a favorite of his – but he isn’t factoring in population and labor-force growth, or the fact that many of the jobs recently gained had been lost during a sharp drop in employment because of the coronavirus pandemic.
The economy is still 5 million jobs under the peak reached before the pandemic, secondo Politifact.
Social media users were quick to point out what many interpreted to be White House spin.
“what world do you guys live in?!” ha scritto un commentatore, along with several laughing and clown emojis.
“This is a joke right?” un altro ha scritto.
A third said, “I do have to say one thing this administration is great at is skewing charts and graphs.”
“Who’s here for the comments lol,” another user joked.
“I don’t think “creato” means what you think it does……” qualcun altro pubblicato.
Biden defended the economy under his watch on Friday.
“There’s been a lot of press coverage about people quitting their jobs,” he said from the White House. “Bene, today’s report tells you why – Americans are moving up to better jobs. This is the kind of recovery I promised and hoped for, for the American people.”
While economic experts had expected 400,000 new jobs to be added in the last report of the year, it was a dismal 199,000.
Ancora, the unemployment rate remains low – as Biden frequently points out – 3.9% giù da 4.2% — the lowest level since the pandemic began.
The labor market had been gaining momentum after a delta-induced slowdown over the summer, but the latest figure represents the second consecutive month of worse-than-expected growth, following upwardly revised gains of 249,000 in November and 648,000 in ottobre. The last time job growth was this slow was in December 2020, when employers cut 306,000 positions.
