Record 157,878,000 Employed in August; Record Low Unemployment Rate for Blacks

(CNSNews.com) - The number of people employed in the United States hit a record 157,878,000 in August, the 21st record set under President Donald Trump, according to the employment report released today by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

That's an increase of 590,000 from the record 157,228,000 employed in July.

The unemployment rate held steady at 3.7 percent. For blacks, the unemployment rate dropped to a record low of 5.5 percent last month. And for Hispanics, the unemployment rate was 4.2 percent in August, which ties the record low set earlier this year.

 So thats 157 Million?, out of what of a population in America, 327.2 million (2018)

The gap is the number unemployed, which peaked at 15.4 million in October 2009 and fell to 7.4 million by November 2016.

As many as 22 million U.S. workers can be considered “underemployed” — that is, they have a job that doesn't put their education, experience or training to work, or they are working part-time when they'd rather have a full-time job, according to a new report from PayScale.

According to the US Department of Housing and Urban Development's Annual Homeless Assessment Report, as of 2018 there were around 553,000 homeless people in the United States on a given night, or 0.17% of the population.

How many Americans are homeless in 2018?

A report from the Department of Housing and Urban Development has found that just under 553,000 people are homeless, with approximately 65% staying in sheltered accommodation. Out of every 10,000 people in the United States, 17 experienced homelessness on a single night in 2018.

How many Americans are homeless in 2019?

Approximately 552,830 people were experiencing homelessness in the United States on a single night in 2018 during the Point-in-Time (PIT) count.

Clearly the post states this is based on the BLS report.  Unemployment is defined by the Bureau of Labor Statistics as people who do not have a job, have actively looked for work in the past four weeks, and are currently available for work. Also, people who were temporarily laid off and were waiting to be called back to that job are included in the unemployment statistics. Employment is anyone 16 or older who worked 15 hours during the past week. Anyone under 16 is not included in the labor force, even if they are working.  The BLS also includes people who didn't work during the week if they were temporarily absent due to vacation, illness, or other reason. 

Anything outside of these parameters is off topic and does not apply to this post.  

So, you said- Anything outside of these parameters is off topic and does not apply to this post....:) really...:)

 Who got the jobs?

The Pew Research Center (PRC) estimates that as of 2014, 71% of California's undocumented population was Mexican-born. Nearly one in ten California workers is an undocumented immigrant. California's labor force includes about 1.75 million undocumented immigrants, according to the PRC.

How many undocumented immigrants in California 2018

Nearly one in ten California workers is an undocumented immigrant. California's labor force includes about 1.75 million undocumented immigrants, according to the PRC.

There were 5.8 million Mexican illegal immigrants living in the U.S.

What percentage of immigrants are unemployed?

The unemployment rate for foreign-born persons in the United States was 3.5 percent in 2018, down from 4.1 percent in 2017, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today.

The BLS bases it's report on it's definitions, nothing else.

I can list the unemployment rate of illegals for all 50 states and how many...:)

LOL Tif

After 1972 Lima Declaration which removed all industry from the developed countries, unemployment will always be out of control. There will never be be enough jobs. Thanks UN...

The UN was built by the British, and American EU politicians, as well as the UN Global Migration Compact. To build a EU Super State.
