A CNBC analyst reporter was shocked at the dismal numbers regarding April’s project reports he needed to double-check himself, based on The Blaze.
“It just came across, give me a second here,” Liesman stated.
“Ahh, sorry about that, it came across very quickly here.”
“It looks 266,000.”
“It looks like it was a big disappointment at 266, but maybe I have that wrong.”
“Let me double-check the [Bureau of Labor Statistics] website here.”
“Yes, 266 is correct … so we have some issues here.”
Neal Bradley said,”The disappointing jobs report makes it clear that paying people not to work is dampening what should be a stronger jobs market.”
“We need a comprehensive approach to dealing with our workforce issues and the very real threat unfilled positions poses to our economic recovery from the pandemic.”
