President Joe Biden is Doubling Down On Undercounting Our Job Rates While Misleading Working-Class Americans Everywhere.



( As Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, and their political team ready themselves, to enter the 2024 presidential race, potentially against a known liar, they promote a vile policy of undercounting professional, blue-collar, and working-class Americans’ Job rates, as President Joe Biden stated, in his State of the Union address (SOTU), the nation’s unemployment rate is, 3.4%, for January. It is, as if he gives no thought, to HIS policy, when it comes to our Job rates. What he, and Democrats are promoting, is misleading. President Joe Biden, and Democrats are behaving arrogantly, if they believe 29 years of undercounting professional, blue-collar, and working-class Americans’ Job rates, and lying about it, does not matter, to American voters. The TRUTH matters.

Democrats are saying, and I do mean all Democrats, of any sway, including former President Barack Obama, and the “currently elected members,” of the Congressional Black Caucus; to them, undercounting the Job rates of American workers of every profession, and class, amounts to “a great political strategy,” to win in 2024. They also, say, they support President Joe Biden’s ambition to sustain this LIE, about our Job rates, as a model policy, for the foreseeable future, undermining the lives of professional, blue-collar, and working-class Americans, everywhere.

The Biden White House, does this, as we face the probability of our 3rd Recession, in 15 years, with millions of economic immigrants crossing our North, and South borders seeking Jobs, in the United States. Our need to know, the REAL Job rate, in these challenging, and uncertain times, should not be unexpected, by anyone, with a bit of thoughtfulness and perception.

If you are a professional, blue-collar, or working-class American, you should start paying attention. Is that being too forceful, my saying that, or maybe it is not forceful enough, depending on your situation, and your Job? If you are in a union, I got news for you, you are not protected, or insulated from being laid-off, as the economy declines.

As high interest rates work their way through the economy, due to the Federal Reserve hiking rates to quell inflation, layoffs will inevitably happen. There is no getting around that, and there is no disagreement, about that conclusion, simply because the objective of the Federal Reserve is to reduce inflation, through reducing consumer spending. That translates into layoffs (less professional, blue-collar, and working-class Americans working, means less spending). Many of you are now thinking, how does the Biden administration undercounting, my Job rates hurt, or affect me, and my family directly, or what does that look like, in a way, I can appreciate, and understand it?

Biden gives the impression, in his SOTU speech, his 3.4% unemployment rate (U-3), from the Table of Alternative Measurements of Labor Rates for January, is comprehensive of our unemployment situation. It is not. Here is how President Joe Biden, and Democrats, hurt you, professional, blue-collar, and working-class Americans. Take the real unemployment rate of 6.6% (U-6), and mathematically determine what percent the 3.4% is, of the real rate. Biden’s rate is 51% of the real rate of 6.6%. So, that leaves 49%. He is, only counting 51% of all professional, blue-collar, and working-class Americans, intentionally leaving 49% out of his count, or on the cutting room floor, as if we do not exist. Who are the American workers, he is intentionally leaving out and, not counting, that are included, in the real unemployment rate count, of 6.6%? Let us take a look and get a clearer picture.

Biden does not include, in his count those that want a Job, and are available for work, who have looked for a Job sometime in the past 12 months, but are not currently looking for work, feeling their search would be in vain. These are considered discouraged workers, who have a Job-market related reason, for not looking for work, presently. Among such reasons, are the belief, no work is available, the belief, that one lacks the requisite skills, or education, and the belief, that one would face discrimination at some point, in the Job search. The inclusion of discouraged workers, in the U-6 category rate of 6.6%, of the real Job rate for January, points to the very definition of unemployment. Unemployment rates should include a means, to measure labor market discouragement, as that is a part of the nature of a declining economy. People get discouraged. As our unemployment rates rise, and the economy worsens, as what will happen, as the Federal Reserve hikes rates, inclusion of discouraged workers in the Job count, is a way to measure, discouragement.

Additionally, Biden does not include “all,” persons, who want, and are available for work, and have recently searched for a Job, regardless of their reason for not currently looking. These could be either professional, blue collar, or working-class Americans, who are not currently looking for work for reasons, such as child-care, or transportation problems. Rather than resolve the problems, President Joe Biden, and Democrats choose, to not count these professional, blue-collar, or working-class Americans, in their unemployment numbers. Resolving these problems, rather than not counting them, would help them, as the Economic Downturn nears, in real time.

He also, does not include in his count, persons employed part-time, who want, and are available for full-time work, but have been forced to settle for part-time Jobs, because the economy is not providing enough full-time Jobs, paying the same, or comparable wages. Biden, and Democrats see these part-time professional, blue-collar, or working-class Americans, as being fully employed, even though, it is the worsening, or deteriorating economy, that is forcing them into this part-time Job schedule situation, to begin with.
