April Unemployment Numbers; Miss Trump Yet?
Sam Pearson 5/7/2021 2:07 PM

Let’s talk about employment in the United States. Below I have posted the April unemployment by county in the United States. What will be obvious is that democrat run communities are faring much worse than republican run communities. The US unemployment rate in the US stands at 6% which is much higher than the 3.7% prior to the COVID-19 lock downs. But it varies widely even within states as democrat run cities have an average of 9.7% unemployment while republican controlled communities average 2.8% unemployment.

What you will also see is the impact of democrats having continued the lockdowns vs the republicans having gone back to work. One would think that if COVID-19 was still an issue, those communities that have opened up would be suffering far more new cases of COVID than those that are locked down. This however is not the case, as a matter of fact. CDC data shows that the same communities which are open also have the lower rates of new cases. In fact, areas where no masking is most common ( have the lowest unemployment and the fewest new cases of COVID.

So, if one wishes to find a good job, go to work and not have to live in fear of COVID or crime they should move from democrat-controlled communities to republican-controlled communities.
