US jobless claims climb to 861,000 despite Covid-19 cases showing drop

The number of Americans seeking unemployment benefits jumped to 861,000 last week, the US Department of Labor announced. It was 848,000 the week prior to that. This was unexpected as the pandemic is slowing down since its post-holidays peak. The total number of workers claiming for jobless aid in the country due to the pandemic now stands at around 78.9 million.

President Biden’s plans to jump start everything seems to have launched perfectly. He had a China virus plan that, as it turns out, looks just like President Trump’s plan... only doesn’t work as well. His plan to get the economy going by closing the country for 100 days seems to be working as expected. More people on the government hand out means more slaves for the corporate masters to use and dispose of. If you think these are high unemployment numbers, you ain’t seen nothing yet.

Anyone with even a slight IQ can figure this one out........most the states that have the high populations are still enforcing lockdowns of some form or other many small businesses are now closed for good and many large corporations have filled all the emtpy job slots months ago with lower then average wages since they already knew millions of people where desperate for work and desperate people are willing to work for less

C'mon Joey, where's all the jobs you promised and all the blood of the dead from Covid-19 since you took office is on your perverted hands. Why isn't the media framing it like this? They constantly did with Trump.
