As the Democrats focus on impeaching Donald Trump, who has left office, the United States' job market is in free fall as those receiving unemployment benefits jumped 2.6 million to 20.4 million, Labor Department data revealed.

Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell sounded the alarm saying the real unemployment rate was probably as high as 10 percent, rather than 6.4 percent.

He also called for a “society-wide” effort to bring the labor market back to a pre-pandemic strength.

But as the job crisis goes on, Democrat lawmakers are still focused on impeaching former President Donald Trump.

Even the White House’s pandemic relief proposal has been put on the shelf while the Senate trial continues.

As the economy expands, many people rejoin the civilian labor force who had left it during the pandemic, restoring it to its pre-pandemic size in 2022,” according to the CBO report.

“The unemployment rate gradually declines throughout the period, and the number of people employed returns to its pre-pandemic level in 2024.”
