The graduate is screwed. Here’s why.
We have nearly 40 million unemployed due to the insanely crappy way that Donnie John and the republicans have handled the closing of the country.
Those nearly 40 million unemployed have all filed for unemployment insurance!
One of the “rules” for getting unemployment insurance in most states is that you must be actively seeking employment and provide proof that you are doing so to the Unemployment Office of your state.
So we have (technically) 3.7 million high school graduates combined with 3.9 million college graduates, all supposedly entering the job market at the same time that 40 million unemployed are looking for work – and ALL OF THEM entering a stagnant economy due to the totally inept bungling of a republican administration that has failed to address the covid-19 coronavirus (which I’ve dubbed the “Trump Virus” due to the magnificent way in which that virus was promulgated by Trump and his toadies).
The American economy isn’t going to magically start up again after being shut down for months, people – think about it – you throw open your doors to customers – where are those customers going to get the money to buy your “goods” – they’ve been out of work, too.
And those customers aren’t being given any money by the federal government because republicans are scared “spitless” that people might come to like the ‘welfare state’ too much!
Look around you – does your business look like it would attract customers from the “One Percent”? Because those are the only people whom the government has been willing to give ANY money to! Everybody else has been spending their available cash keeping food on the table at home, and they no longer have it to spend on your business!
So you’ve opened your businesses, per Trump’s request – good luck keeping them open!
