In a recent interview, self-described democratic socialist and congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez pontificated about the reason for the low unemployment rate, warranting a response from Politifact.
In the interview with PBS, Ocasio-Cortez claimed unemployment is low because “everyone has two jobs” and “people are working 60, 70, 80 hours a week and can barely feed their family.”
Politifact gave this statement a “pants on fire” rating.
“In our review, we found many reasons why unemployment is low, and not for the overwork that Ocasio-Cortez cited,” the article wrote. “The biggest factors include strong economic confidence and the long-running economic recovery.”
Politifact then cited the Department of Labor including a statistic that only six to seven million people have multiple jobs compared to 148 million Americans who only have one job. They added, “So by the official statistics, multiple job holders account for a tiny fraction of American workers.” – READ MORE[give_form id=”79809″] [contentcards url=”https://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2018/07/20/elizabeth-warren-low-unemployment-is-because-americans-working-2-3-or-4-jobs/” target=”_blank”]
