NEW RECORD: Number Of Americans Participating In Labor Force Higher Than Ever Before

When President Trump says he wants to Make America Great Again, he is being serious. Already, there is solid proof that he is doing just that.

The Free Beacon reported:

The number of Americans either working or looking for work in the past month hit a record high of 160,213,000, according to numbers released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

There were 12,000 more Americans who joined the labor force in April, while 162,000 left. The number of Americans not participating in the labor force increased from 94,213,000 in March to 94,375,000 in April. The bureau counts those not in the labor force as people who do not have a job and did not actively seek one in the past four weeks.

The labor force participation rate, which is the percentage of the population that has a job or actively looked for one in the past month, declined slightly from 63 percent in March to 62.9 percent in April.

In addition to more individuals joining the labor force this month, the number of unemployed individuals declined by 146,000 Americans, leading to a decline in the unemployment rate.

The rate of labor force participation is lower due to an increase of people classified as being out of the labor force.

However, the total number of Americans classified as participating in the labor force is at 160,213,000.

A record high!

Funny how the mainstream media doesn’t want to pay attention to this!
