Black Unemployment at Lowest Rate on Record

On 01.07.18 09:04 AM posted by Video Team

In Friday’s jobs report, black unemployment reached a record low: 6.8 percent. That’s the lowest black unemployment has been since the Bureau of Labor Statistics began tracking unemployment, which started in 1972. “The lowest in nearly 5 decades and a credit to [President Donald Trump’s] economic policies!!” tweeted White House deputy press secretary Raj Shah.

Trump weighed in, too:
The African American unemployment rate fell to 6.8%, the lowest rate in 45 years. I am so happy about this News! And, in the Washington Post (of all places), headline states, “Trumps first year jobs numbers were very, very good.”

And so did the new president of The Heritage Foundation, Kay Coles James:
Great news for African Americans – unemployment rate is the lowest EVER.

We have more work to do—but what a great way to start the new year!

Watch the video above to see Fox Business’ Charles Payne discuss the record low number.
