He also discusses wage growth, labor shortages and what comes next for President Biden's economic agenda as the delta variant drives coronavirus cases up.

why does Stephanie point her finger at walsh
Gonna need those jobs to find new housing thanks to the eviction moratorium
MSNBC dumbs down their stories more gooder so libs like me can understand 🤪
Account started TODAY, September 3, 2021 to simp for America’s enemies.
Americans stranded in Kabul, they’re blood is on your hands Joe. Including the 13 soldiers.
What’s that got to do with jobs
@Stonevalley ######## I’m sure it’s just a daily reminder how much Joe Biden actually sucks here I’ll give you one too 250,000 deaths from covid under Biden’s watch
@Mark Evans <--- account started August 26, 2021. Obvious newborn troll. Ignore.
@Mark Evans don’t forget this s*** started with Trump it’ll pass it’ll pass one day it’ll be gone LOL
@Mark Evans <--- Lying troll.
Shout out to George Floyd on sixteen months of sobriety. It took some tough love but he did it. Say his name liberals🖕💉
This troll account joined YouTube July 27, 2021.
May you experience the same miracle!
@Larry Jensen <--- Troll account started August 11, 2021. Ignore.
@omi god Why don’t you use your brain and put 2+2 together? I wasn’t talking to you, I was wishing the same ‘miracle of sobriety’ on the OP
@Larry Jensen Does that confer non-troll status upon you?
As a lib I am only concerned that their lavatories are LGBTQ friendly. Because that’s what’s important!
Yet another newborn troll account, started on August 3, 2021. Ignore this punkski.
*REAL WAGES HAVE DECLINED EVERY MONTH SINCE BIDEN HAS BEEN IN OFFICE*
Lying troll account started on March 18, 2021 to simp for the enemies of America.
And you work for what department it says jobs have declined
“Real” wages are a figure determined by taking wage increases and subtracting the effect of inflation. So yeah – since inflation has been taking off, that impacts “real” wages, even though salaries have actually been INCREASING.
Inflation is not controlled by any President, and neither are wages. The OP is presenting a classic “red herring” argument, especially since he doesn’t say whether “real” wages were declining in the months BEFORE Biden took office.
Stop the CAP 🧢🧢🧢. Almost 3,000 people dead from covid in 1 day and a you have to say is get back to work
Thank you president Trump 🙏 ❤
HE’S NOT HERE. ON MSNBC.
HE SAID ENEMIES 2.24.17.
Media thee enemy.
Just not yours on free press news media pages against us.
I WORK IN BOSTON MEDIA.
NEWS FOR FREE PEOPLE
EST 3/5/1770. BOSTON MA.
You have news from 1 man unquestioned. FOREVER.
Everytime a Democrat says “We have more work to do” they really mean YOU HAVE MORE WORK TO DO.
And what The Republicans don’t want you to work
Every time a Duh-Publican says, ‘we have it all under control and it’s better than it’s ever been!,’ they really mean it’s hopeless but they aren’t going to do anything about anything anyway.
I’ve never met a hard working Trump supporter. They pass the hard work off on other people and always try to go home early. They are worthless.
Let’s ask a propaganda expert what he thinks. As if you don’t already know what he is going to say.
Stagflation Biden doesn’t know what’s going on!
When President Trump was in the White House: “omg the number is way below the forecast! IMPEACH HIM!”
With demented Biden: “forget about the forecast, it’s wrong”
The supply chain bottlenecks are devastating to many industries. When you can’t get the specific raw materials needed to make the products to sell, businesses and their customers suffer.
Build Some Lithium Battery Factories Somewhere
Catering To The Rich Is Not A Jobs Engine
Dresses in the same vein as the commerce secretary, uses primarily the same measures, but then why are there two departments? Sorry but the lack of difference is that since labor’s not a quantity / piece of property as much as it is a quality, this gentleman’s not allowed to speak in those terms because the average laborer’s not allowed the same respect…
Now that’s too bad because monthly stats aren’t going to capture feelings of trauma over the last 1 1/2 yr, and growing…
YEA, LESS YIELD CURVE TYPE STUFF. AND MUCH MORE LABOR – LEISURE TYPE STUFF, PERIOD!!!!
Well thank the pubs for grave hopping and quitting due to mandates. The job and housing markets will be opening up. Pass those 2 tucking infrastructure bills and the problem will be solve.
I think this admin in trouble. If its not broke don’t fix it. They should have kept the Trump ball in motion when they took over and they would be in great shape today. Not good.
Yep. He hasn’t totally screwed everything up yet.
