The Biden Administration just got caught red-handed hiding the real jobs numbers again

The mainstream media keeps trying to prop up Team Biden by pushing a narrative that the economy is fantastic.

While the administration put out the jobs numbers for January claiming the economy is doing great, what wasn’t put in the press release about the February job numbers is sobering to anyone paying attention.

But what the press and the Biden Administration are not telling you about employment in the U.S. is terrifying.

Jobs report creating confusion

A lot of Americans are quite confused about the health of the U.S. economy as large corporations continue to conduct mass layoffs nationwide, while those looking for work struggle to land a job.

Yet, the Biden Administration and talking heads in the mainstream media keep saying that the unemployment rate is low.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) released the February jobs numbers, and Zero Hedge called it “the most ridiculous jobs report in history.”

According to the Zero Hedge report, “Last month we thought that the January jobs report was ‘the most ridiculous in recent history’ but boy, we were wrong because this morning the Biden department of goalseeked Propaganda (BLS) published the February jobs report, and holy crap was that something else. Even Goebbels would blush.”

The jobs report said that the U.S. economy added 275,000 jobs in February; however, the real number of native-born workers actually fell by 560,000.

Over the last three months, that number has fallen by an eye-watering 2.4 million in total.

Now that the President is in full campaign mode, there’s an incentive for the White House to keep the lies coming.

The BLS claims that 1.2 million foreign-born workers were added to the totals during February alone.

If that number is correct, it means that a record 1.2 foreign-born (both legal and illegal) workers were added in February, which is extremely difficult to believe.

According to Challenger, Gray, & Christmas, the U.S. saw the highest number of layoffs in February since the Great Recession.

They reported, “The total of 84,638 planned cuts showed an increase of 3% from January and 9% from the same month a year ago, with technology and finance companies at the forefront. From a historical perspective, this was the worst February since 2009, which saw 186,350 announcements as the worst of the financial crisis was seemingly coming to an end.”

Comparing the hard data with what the administration is telling Americans, it seems that they’re gaslighting voters.

Adults who are not working are either classified as “unemployed” or “not in the labor force.”

Approximately 6,458,000 Americans were considered officially “unemployed” in February, and another 100,285,000 Americans were “not in the labor force.”

When added together, those two numbers give us a grand total of 106,743,000 Americans who are currently not working.

In other words, around 107 million Americans do not have a job.

Unemployment is higher than during the Great Recession

The number of Americans without a job was less than 90 million during the Great Recession, so it’s much higher today.

That number is also much higher than it ever was at any time during the Great Depression of the 1930s.

As the cost of living continues to rise amid mass layoffs, it’s more difficult than ever for the average American to survive.

Wages aren’t keeping up with inflation, and a report on pay trends from ZipRecruiter found that 48% of 2,000 U.S. companies surveyed paid lower for certain roles in 2023.

Meanwhile, Joe Biden and his ilk will continue to smile at the camera and tell Americans that everything is just fine.
