Commerce Sec. Raimondo Reacts To New Jobs Report, Labor Shortage


    1. We are going nowhere but up as far as jobs and getting a handle on the virus in states that care about their citizens. I just hope in 7 plus years the American people have learned their lesson and never elect another Republican President. I hope in 2022 the Republicans are voted out by the dozens.Then again in 2024 and finally in 2026 they will not be relevant. That does not mean they do not need to be continually voted out until the last few scurry away to their spot under the bridge. Be gone with these sh*t stains on my great nation.

  1. It nice to have Cabinet members who are not about to die or asleep.

  2. Republicans are desperately pushing their propaganda on MSNBC and any other network that isn’t Fox News.

    1. @INCARNATE they’ve got nothing or they would have already acted on it but if you continue to listen MSNBC of course you’re going to believe them

    2. @Mark Evans LOL…It’s hilarious how you clowns like to ignore the fact traitor boy has had the WH to use as a shield against criminal prosecution for the last 4 years…I guess the 2 of his cronies that have already been indicted since he left office must have slipped your mind…

    3. @INCARNATE he’s not there now and he’s still walking the streets so guess what nothing’s going to happen stop getting your hopes up why don’t you concentrate on all the good stuff Joe Biden still in for you oh that’s right

    4. @Mark Evans You keep telling yourself that if it gets you through the night….Like I said, I’m sure that stack of felonies hanging over him will magically disappear….Enjoy his sentencing…

    5. @INCARNATE didn’t I just tell you to concentrate on all the good things Joe Biden is doing for you Trump’s gone you got to let him go he’s not going to jail

  3. Give this report 2 days before the lunatics start claiming the job numbers are a result of Trump policies.

    1. @FAFO she won’t answer you she’s another one of them that love the Run they’re trap and run and go hide

    2. @Mark Evans But you didn’t answer my question. When bright spots occurred under Trump did you EVER give blue states any credit? You do realize that blue states are more populated than red states, right?

    3. @D. Boss no because anything Trump did the Blues hate him he had one of the best economies this country has ever had before covid and they wouldn’t give him any credit

    4. @Mark Evans Here’s an example for the uneducated. California is the 5th largest economy in the entire world. California is a blue state. Trump did zero to help California. So explain why you don’t give this blue state credit…when your “disgraced” ex-president was in office? Whether they hated his policies or not doesn’t negate the fact that they are the largest economy in the U.S. and thrive regardless of whose in office.

  4. Joke:
    Q: How many Trump supporters does it take to change a light bulb?
    A: None. He just LIES and tells the dummies it’s already been changed and the idiots all stand in the dark yelling how great he is.

  5. There are jobs for people who want them. The cost of things are going up because of supply and demand and just in time manufacturing. The Job numbers are growing every month and are the highest in 40 years yet there are some who think there will be a return of the Chump or any Republican is highly unlikely. We are Ridin with Biden for the next 7 years plus get used to it.

  6. Of course, the reason couldn’t possibly be that the wages are waaay too low- it’s been about 23 YEARS since the minimum wage was increased federally!!

  7. Amplified Bible
    All of us like sheep have gone astray, We have turned, each one, to his own way; But the LORD has caused the wickedness of us all [our sin, our injustice, our wrongdoing] To fall on Him [instead of us]. Isaiah 53:6

  8. The answer is worker owned cooperative enterprise in housing, manufacturing, shipping, farming ext. If Americans actually owned these things, the foundations of their lives essentially. We wouldn’t be in this situation in the first place.

  9. 1. Stop calling it a labor shortage it’s a wage shortage! 2. These aren’t new jobs these are people returning to old jobs that are opening back up.

    MSM reporting score F-

  10. Biden’s doing the right thing by American Workers and Building Back Middle Class jobs. republicans are lying when they claim to support working people, and still support cutting taxes for the 1% who often pay no taxes.

  11. Here’s a thought: How about we do the same thing every other modern country we claim to have the high-ground on and pay our workers a wage that doesn’t require Food Stamps to survive?
