Commerce Secretary Raimondo: ‘No Evidence’ Unemployment Benefits Holding Back Hiring

Pam Key 6 Jun 2021

Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week” that there was no evidence that enhanced unemployment benefits to address the coronavirus pandemic had “significantly held back hiring.”

Anchor George Stephanopoulos said, “President Biden said on Friday some of the temporary unemployment benefits should expire in September. Republicans like Kevin McCarthy have been saying we have to stop paying people not to work. Have the extended benefits held back hiring?”

Raimondo said, “We hear it anecdotally. I would say there is no evidence that they have significantly held back hiring. Here’s what we do know, those extended benefits have been a lifeline for Americans who have been struggling. They have meant the difference between someone being able to pay the rent or being homeless, someone being able to feed their children, or their kids going hungry. Look, the jobs report on Friday was a good report.”

“Long-term unemployment going down, wages going up, 2 million jobs created in this president’s term so far,” she continued. “The most jobs created ever in the first few months of a presidency. So they will expire in September. You know, I think the economy will continue to strengthen. But make no mistake about it, they were necessary, and they were a lifeline for Americans for the past several months during this pandemic.”

Politically the democrats rule like monarchs, naturally like corrupt monarchs they are loathe to admit their part in how things are turning out.  Yeah i'm in charge, but don't blame me, blame those Republicans that are out of power, yeah, that's the ticket !

What a defeatist POS.  There has got to be a solution out there somewhere.  It might not be easy or cheap, but it's there.

Also evidence. If someone currently on unemployment says, "Hell, no, I'm not going back to work. I'm collecting $600 a week now to do nothing. Why bother going back to work for $500?" is that not some type of evidence that the inflated unemployment benefits are discouraging workers from returning to their jobs?

Same here.  I like using manual lanes at Walmart, due to ease, and not WM from eliminating jobs.  I recently was at a WM, and no lanes were open.  Associate told me too hard to get workers when they can stay home on a government check.

A lot of restaurants near me are having to cut back on hours of service, due to a lack of workers (including one of my favorites). I just heard that even a Dollar General store in our town was closed today because they had no one to work.

A complete dunce.

Even my sorry nephew who was laid off told me when I asked him when he was going to get a job, that he would not begin looking until his unemployment benefits were gone.

What a kind of twatwaddle  crap is she spouting? 
Any political party that can't cough up anything better than a treacherous brain-damaged old vulture like Joe Biden deserves to die a slow death.

The kind you learn in college nowadays.
To hell with every single one of these bastards who are creating a moral permission slip for anarchists and other criminals and thugs to destroy our country as we know it.

Just like jihad attacks on America foreign or domestic, or enemies, even foriegn Countries wax bold when democrats are in power, as told you before, they know the best time to attack America is when their democrat buddies are in power, here.  Just like gun terrorism in America go to where democrats hold power or where their gun control policies make it easier to slaughter and get away with it, or maximize the effort.\
Some say cyber attacks come from Russia, the same Russia Obama was in bed with who now dictates instructions to Biden.  The more things change, the more they stay the same.
