As Jobs Report Massively Disappoints, Biden Quotes Irrelevant Stats To Explain Why It Didn't

U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo said on Sunday that the dismal April jobs report reveals the economy has a "long way to go" as it heals from the coronavirus pandemic amid judgment that extended unemployment benefits are reducing the incentive for Americans to get back to work.

The U.S. added just 266,000 new jobs last month, well below the 1 million forecast by Wall Street.

"I think we have a long way to go to recover from the pandemic. There are so many Americans still struggling. Eight million fewer jobs than there were pre-pandemic," Raimondo said during an appearance on CBS' "Face the Nation." "We are working very hard. In fact, we had a meeting with the president on Friday, and that was his direction to us, which is we are making bold moves, but there's a long way to go and we have to be there to help Americans find jobs."
