As President Joe Biden threatens to raise taxes on American job creators, as unemployment benefits continue and as inflation gains steam, the latest economic picture is a bleak one.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, unemployment has gone up rather than down as Wuhan coronavirus restrictions across the country are lifted.
"It looks like it was a big miss," CNBC reports.
"A big miss on jobs, the worst miss we're told since 98,"analysts continue.

The April jobs report was the worst miss in 23 years: "The worst miss, we're told, since '98."
Today’s jobs report is a disappointment—just like President Biden’s plan to burden families with more taxes & more debt.— Kevin McCarthy (@GOPLeader) May 7, 2021
While Dems trap people in a cycle of fear & pay them NOT to work, it’s clear the best thing to do is end the crisis-era policies & get Americans back to work.
The news comes as prices rise on basic household goods, groceries and energy, prompting fears of increased inflation.
