Liberal Insanity. Cortez Says Unemployment Low Because…

By

Liberal superstar and Socialist candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez left economists across the country scratching their heads this week, falsely claiming that America’s unemployment rate was low because “everyone has two jobs.”

Cortez was speaking with PBS News when she was asked to comment on the healthy US economy, bizarrely suggesting “capitalism” may cease to exist in the world at some point in the future.

Watch:

“The economy is going pretty strong. There’s roughly 4% unemployment. Do you think capitalism has failed to deliver for working class Americans?” asked the reporter.

“I think the numbers are part of the problem. We look at these figures and say unemployment is low everything is fine. Unemployment is low because everyone has two jobs. Unemployment is low because people are working 60 hours per week and can barely feed their kids,” fired back Cortez.

According to the Bureau of Labor statistics, “People are classified as unemployed if they do not have a job, have actively looked for work in the prior 4 weeks, and are currently available for work.”

The definition has nothing to do with the amount of jobs people have, or the hours worked.
