Stacey Abrams Spins Job Report: ‘Insufficient’ to ‘Focus on Traditional Masculine Areas of the Economy’

Stacey Abrams Spins Job Report: ‘Insufficient’ to ‘Focus on Traditional Masculine Areas of the Economy’

You cannot spin this job report. It was bad and had nothing to do with “masculine” anything.

First of all, why is anyone asking Stacey Abrams about the April jobs report? Shouldn’t she be governing Georgia? Oh, wait.

On The View, Meghan McCain mentioned the jobs report showed only 266,000 jobs came about in April when experts predicted almost a million. She also noted, “the fact that all of the jobs went to men.”

McCain asked Abrams, “Is this a clear indication that throwing money at this problem isn’t working?”

Abrams answered in the most Democratic way:

“Actually, I would see it a different way. We know this is a complicated challenge, a pandemic that’s affected the economy for women in devastating ways, and the notion that recovery would happen overnight is just — it’s unfounded. Instead what we’re seeing are the combination of being able to survive the pandemic and start to build towards recovery, and I think that’s why the American jobs plan and the American families plan are both so incredibly important because it recognizes that the economy of care which employs so many women has got to be seen as an essential part of how we rebuild our economy, and that it is insufficient for us to simply focus on the traditional masculine areas of the economy, recognizing that we have to have women in every area, but that in particular women have been hardest hit, and therefore we need intentional engagement and intervention to rebuild it back more solidly.”

We don’t have to have females in every area. A lot of females stayed home because they have children at home. You know, since a lot of Democrats refused to open schools.

I guess she did not read the World Economic Forum’s Global Gender Gap Report.

The report backs up one of Abrams’ points: “5% of all employed women lost their jobs, compared with 3.9% of employed men.” (page 6).

The next sentence disproves Abrams: “Although in absolute terms 64 million women and 80 million men have lost their jobs, the relative impact is higher on working women simply because there are less women in the labour market overall.”

(That should be fewer instead of less, but alas!)

Maybe Abrams should encourage her Democrat buddies to open the schools. Women have anxiety about job security, but also changed routines and children at home.

    Please, either blur her hidious picture, or leave it out.

      I swear, I never resort to criticizing a person for their looks but I cannot look at that woman without seeing her as just, slimy.

      Okay, not never. She was apparently raised on chicken fried bacon for breakfast lunch and dinner.

    GA Governor Stacy forgot me. I am a male that made tampons, but lost my job to Covid. So, would I count or not, Stacy?

    Actually, I am a non binary Southern Hemisphere pineapple top enema bandit. My preferred pronouns are Zoo/Boo/Doo/Who and I write from the indigenous land of the Seminole Indians. Although non binary, I menstruate and am part of “Menstruating Males Anonymous”, AKA MMA.

    Best pizza in Atlanta is Jagger’s BTW, Governor.

      LOL! I’ve already made up my mind to shame the hell out of the first health care “professional” who asks for my preferred pronouns. Yes, I’m not 18, anymore, and no, I don’t have the body I used to, but I am still quite clearly a woman. Can a medical doctor or nurse really, not tell that I am a woman? How dare you ask me if I’m a woman or a man! Do I look like a freaking man? Reaching menopause makes my sex (i.e. a biological FEMALE) suspect? This is insulting and rude. You can’t tell a woman from a man? And I’m supposed to believe you are a medical professional? Insulting, rude, and insultingly rudely insulting.

      I would just rail on all day long until he submitted that s/he’s a dirty woke POS, of course, but you get the idea. We have to stop this as we encounter it, and that definitely means not taking this crazy lying down.

Abrams never disappoints in making statements. I presume that she was equally loud in sounding off that the expected number of jobs, nearly one million, was equally absurd prior to the release of the numbers?

Disappointing number..well that’s to be expected because reasons that add up to spend more money. Heads I win.

Actually achieve the projected numbers …well that Biden has sure got the economy rolling. Tails you lose.

Give me a break.

The media are already doing everything they can to promote this marginally intelligent two-fer minority to be our next President. Another Obama.

What a Slug. LOL

At least she got the gender “masculine” right. Baby steps.

Why LI quoting this embarrassment

    healthguyfsu in reply to gonzotx. | May 11, 2021 at 8:45 pm

    In order to fact check her, since the leftist shill fake fact checker sites out there won’t do it.

Why should Ms. Piggy be talking about this? Has she been appointed to some position of significance or is she still the sore looser of a gubernatorial election?

her next book will be a study of the economy in the guise of a cheap romance novel

Well remember, when men were out of a job they were losing 21 cents more per dollar than women out of jobs.
How come our demidiots didn’t call that one out?

healthguyfsu | May 11, 2021 at 10:09 pm

Not sure why Stacey is so mad. More masculine jobs means she has a shot at a real job one day as opposed to grifter.

I think she’s just perfect to be the face of today’s Democrat Party.

She’s never accomplished a thing in her life, she’s comprehensively ignorant on every issue, and every time she opens her mouth stupid falls out.

Bonus: She still refuses to accept the results of the GA Gov race she lost.

I’m telling ya – we should have Adams moderate on the weekends, and call her “Fatty Slippers”.

“Stacy Abrams spins”

I suppose if you had a heavy duty block and tackle and enough strength to twist her a few times then let go it might be possible for her to spin but a safety net is out of the question.

the fact that all of the jobs went to men
Even if true, that isn’t evidence of what she’s implying. Men are more likely to lose their jobs in economic downturns, so naturally they are more likely to get a new job in an economic upturn. Only women matter to Abrams, so if a man loses his job it isn’t him that’s hit hard, it’s his wife or girlfriend.

    “On The View, Meghan McCain mentioned the jobs report showed only 266,000 jobs came about in April when experts predicted almost a million. She also noted, “the fact that all of the jobs went to men.”

    In other words, the administration did a crap job putting men to work, and really screwed the pooch when it came to putting women to work.

    So Abrams blubbers on about that in such a way to blame this on the men. Or maybe Trump.

Comanche Voter | May 12, 2021 at 7:05 am

Ol Stacy–amazing how much bulldust is stored in that blubber.

If Stacy really wants to put women back to work, she needs to campaign for Trump to be President. He’s the only one that has really supported and accomplished increased employment for women and minorities!!

Hasn’t anyone told Trigglypuff II that there are 57 billion different genders now?

Only anCommunist or an idiot would say there are “masculine areas of the economy”, unless, of course, you are talking about the decline sales of jock straps!

Stacey Abrams: Recipient of Golden Corral’s “Customer of the Millenium Award.”

Biden’s promise was either to expand the overall job market or the “traditional masculine” job market by 2 million jobs. He added about 1/8th that amount to the job market. He failed to reach his projections, no matter which market he was talking about.

Abram doesn’t understand that by postulating that there is a wokist’s version of the job market that is potentially larger than the “traditional masculine” job market, that makes Joe’s failure comparatively greater because there is theoretically more room for expansion. Imagine blowing an amount of air into a balloon insufficient to inflate it fully, and then blowing the same amount of air into a larger balloon. Which balloon is the more flaccid?

ssdd.

Dem’s pander to their voters, ascribe them special importance to elevate their victimhood, and then try to guilt us into compliance because they don’t have a leg to stand on.

Housing crashes, welfare queens, single mothers, stuttering economies, “gun” violence instead of “gang” violence, crap schools, crap “educators”, ad nauseaum.

It never ends.

The rungs on the intersectionally ladder don’t make you smart. In her case, it just reinforced her ignorance.

I sometimes wonder how people like Abram can possibly feel that they can govern others when they barely have enough functioning brain cells to recognize when they have to go to the bathroom
