The United States’ economic fallout from the Coronavirus pandemic reached a tragic milestone this week, with new data showing more than 20 million jobs left the economy in April alone sending the unemployment rate to the highest levels since the Great Depression.
“U.S. employers cut 20.5 million jobs in April, a record-shattering number that pushed unemployment to 14.7 percent, the highest level since the Great Depression, as the coronavirus pandemic triggered an unprecedented economic catastrophe,” reports Fox Business.
“The grim Labor Department report provides one of the most comprehensive looks at the economic damage inflicted by the virus outbreak and subsequent stay-at-home measures mandated by states to curb the spread of COVID-19,” adds the website.
“The unemployment numbers are clearly going to be shocking,” said Jason Reed, an economist and the assistant chair and finance professor at the University of Notre Dame’s Mendoza College of Business.
“But it really will come as a surprise to no one who has been following this story. It’s more like, how do we get back on the road to recovery instead of keep watching these signposts saying we’re in trouble,” he added. “We haven’t really, I think, moved yet to get back on that road.”

A NEW LOW: MSNBC Analyst Claims Trump’s Coronavirus Response Constitutes ‘Involuntary Manslaughter’
MSNBC Legal Analyst Glenn Kirschner left millions of users on social media scratching their heads this week; baselessly asserting President Trump’s Coronavirus response could be prosecuted for “involuntary manslaughter.”
“Trump’s conduct easily satisfies all 3 elements of involuntary manslaughter. In fact, his gross negligence is beginning to look more like conduct evincing a ‘conscious disregard of an extreme risk of death/serious bodily injury = the standard for depraved heart/2nd degree murder,’” he posted on Twitter.
