Rising political star Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a Democratic Socialist, was criticized this week by both sides of the political wing when she falsely declared that unemployment was low because "all of world has two jobs ".
is actually calculated by the number of unemployed in the United States divided by the number of people in the labor force – the number of jobs that a person works does not affect the rate.
Unemployment in the United States is 4%, one of the lowest rates in 18 years. Ocasio-Cortez has just got rid of Joe Crowley, DN.Y., a former Democratic Democrat for a long time, in a frightening run for a district of New York and Queens, New York
"I wonder where are these fact checkers. "Mike Huckabee, a former Governor of Arkansas, said in an interview with Dagen McDowell of FOX Business
PolitiFact, an organization that verifies statements made by politicians, in fact rated Ocasio-Cortez's claims as "pants on fire", and wrote that unemployment is low for a number of reasons – economic confidence, long-term economic recovery – but not several jobs.  This did not stop Senator Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., From repeating the claims of Ocasio-Cortez of Americans working several jobs, however, during an MSNBC interview, the former Harvard professor said that people tr "two, three, four jobs" to survive financially, Trump's economic policies as According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, which measures the number of people working two jobs, the number of multiple job holders in the US United was between 6 and 7 million in 2017, reported PolitiFact. This compares to 148 million Americans who are employed in a job.
"I think the real question is, Elizabeth: You have a job.It's a senator," Huckabee said. "Why not introduce yourself and do it, and that includes the confirmation of some of the appointments that the president has made.This includes trying to do your job as a senator, rather than turning around and doing things like a fiction writer.
