Univision’s anchor, who was even more dismayed by September’s job report from the Department of Labor, felt the need to add some FAKE NEWS to explain why the 4.3 million Americans quit their jobs in that month. He blamed the U.S. Department of Labor.
Watch as anchor Elyangélica González, from the midday Univision News, Digital Edition, misinformed the audience by saying that, “According to the Department of Labor, the job separations were “happening due to a combination of increased opportunities with better pay elsewhere, in addition to fear over the Delta variant.”
One never loses an opportunity to clean up Biden’s mess when it comes liberal journalists:
Let’s move on because our number of the day is: 4 million, 300 thousand. That’s the record number of Americans that quit their jobs, which is the highest since December of 2000 and which is equivalent to 3% of the workforce. August’s hiring figures were 6.3 million as compared to 6.8 millions in July. The Department of Labor says this was due to increased opportunity and better pay elsewhere as well as fear about the Delta variant.
The press release distributed by the Department of Labor DID NOT INCLUDE such reasons as stated on-air by González. This is the portion of the press conference regarding separations.
Total separations includes quits, layoffs and discharges, and other separations. Quits can be voluntary, initiated by employees. Therefore, the quits rate can serve as a measure of workers’ willingness or ability to leave jobs. Involuntary departures by an employer can be laid off or discharged. Other separations includes separations due to retirement, death, disability, and transfers to other locations of the same firm.
Univision.com’s report about the subject Speculative on the possible causes for the exodus; but for González to state alleged official government information as fact, she deserves to be called out for what it is: FAKE NEWS.
