Black Employment Rose Faster than White Employment in July, Black-White Jobless Gap at Historic Low
John Carney 7 Aug 2020
The better than expected jobs gains in July boosted black employment in the United States by more than it boosted white employment. As well, the black-white gap in unemployment is at a historic low.
The number of black Americans holding jobs in the United States rose 1.4 percent in July, according to data released by the Department of Labor Friday. That bested the 0.6 percent gain for white Americans and 0.7 percent gain for Hispanic Americans. The biggest jobs gains went to Asian Americans, who saw total employment rise by 5.1 percent.
Since blacks are proportionally higher in population in urban areas, how much of this employment discrepancy is due to damage and disruption incurred by BLM/Anitifa rioters in those cities they work? :pondering:
Damn white privilege.
