    Here’s why the black unemployment rate hit a 16 ½-year low

    ..But how about when you break down the 4.3% unemployment rate by race? Two groups fall below the overall level — with the white unemployment rate at 3.7% and the Asian unemployment rate at 3.5%. Meanwhile, the Hispanic unemployment rate is 5.2% and the black unemployment rate is 7.5% — its lowest level since December 2000...

    ..Both Kolko and Shierholz say that a tightening labor market has benefited all workers, including African Americans, and increased the likelihood they’ll find jobs.

    “We’re in a job market where job seekers have more of the power. Employers might turn some of their essential skill requirements into ‘nice to haves’ instead. This opens up opportunities to more people,” Kolko said.

    “Workers across the board are benefiting from a tight labor market,” said Shierholz. “Employers know they have to offer decent pay and compensation packages in order to get and keep the workers they need, shifting bargaining power in a real fundamental sense toward workers.”...


    Four more years! #MAGA

    This early, it would be a reflection on Obama.

    Nope, Obama was a lame duck President. If you're going to credit the Obama years, credit is due to the GOP-controlled Congress.

    Trump hasn't done one motherfucking thing to create a fuckin job....he's still riding the wave Obama left in jobs creations. As for blacks finding jobs....give me a fuckin break...there have been for the last 2 years plenty of fuckin jobs out here, my job included, its just that these motherfuckers didn't want to work because of the freebee's states gave them, but because these mf's don't vote, they're now finding all these benefits under GOP governors no longer there, so the mf's have to work....but this shit has absolutely nothing and I mean nothing to do with that lying sack of dog shit TrumP!!!

    More shameless, ridiculous Trumpster bullshit.

    Black unemployment has been going down consistently with general unemployment rate under Obama for 7 years straight. It came down from 16% down to 8% and yet now that Trump was in office for a few months these yahoo's are suddenly falling over each other to congratulate the president on 0.5% continuation of the same trend they were in total denial about for 7 years.
