"93.1 kfbk, Sadie Warning Carmichael's Sacramento 79 out Grove 81 degrees. It's for 12. So your poll question today is based on this disappointing April jobs report far below expectations. They thought maybe he'd be a million. It was a 266,000 jobs.

How vital the actions were taking our Checks to people who are hurting. Meantime, the U. S Chamber of Commerce today blamed that $300 per week federal jobless benefit for keeping Americans at home.

It benefits We need to take away these extra benefits so so are businesses can reopen, recover and thrive. And that's exactly what governors in Montana and South Carolina are doing. They began to pull their states out of the federal unemployment programs. Now, having said all that it's something to think about. Of course, there are people who've had to stay home with kids who haven't been in school people who may be afraid to go back to work because of Cove it so there could be other reasons. Why They don't go back to work and prefer to just accept the benefits will go into our pound to 50 call our line real quick here.

"266,000 jobs" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"Is Bloomberg 11 Trio now. Global News Update. President Biden is reacting to the disappointing April jobs report as the economy added 266,000 jobs far below expectations. Today's report makes clear. Thank goodness we passed the American rescue plan. Help is here and more help is on the way and more help is needed. Speaking from the White House, the president said he does not believe enhanced unemployment benefits discourage people from seeking work. The U. S Chamber of Commerce is calling for states to stop giving the unemployed an extra $300 a week in unemployment benefits. The business groups said. It's keeping some Americans at home and out of the labor market where there are plenty of jobs available. The supplemental unemployment benefits are scheduled to last through early September. Wall Street is finishing the week with more record highs. Broke, who was one of the big winners as investors return to tech stocks today, the streaming TV company easily beat expectations in its earnings report. I'm Brian shook This is Bloomberg Wall Street Week with David Westin from Bloomberg. Radio Way. Welcome. Now our special Wall Street we contributor Larry Summers of Harvard. Larry welcomes great to see you So first we'll start with these jobs numbers. They were so surprising to so many people 266,000 instead of one million, some people thought we two million They tell us anything beyond this one Data point. I think it's hard to interpret. My sense is that it's got a lot to do with the emerging labor shortages that we're hearing about almost everywhere. That managers in many different places are talking about and worrying about it. And if people can't find workers, employment can employments got to go up? Evidence for that is that we really had a extremely strong average hourly earnings print this month. Now it's only one month and they were down last month. But they were up to 9% annual rate this month, and probably the figure was artificially held down. The fact that most of the new jobs were in low wage sectors like restaurants, so I think what we're seeing is more and more evidence of labor shortage. And maybe that'll prove to be transitory. Maybe it'll turn out that as people go back to school, um more more people come into the workforce and will lose that sense of labor shortage, but As I look at the data, I see much stronger evidence that people who retired over the last year aren't coming back. I see more and more evidence that people who in one way or another have changed around their lives aren't coming back for a while, So I expect that is the economy grows rapidly is everybody thinks it's going to over the next few months? That that labor shortage problem is going to grow that that's going to be putting more and more pressure on wages, and that's ultimately gonna move into prices, so I actually think there's reason to think that inflation might even accelerate from where it is this summer. Rather than the deceleration that the Fed and the Treasury or so confidently predicting, you know, it's further evidence for that view toe Look at the housing market. You see the prices of housing, rising and incredible middle double digit rates in the teens that probably is telling you that rents are gonna be going up before long. That's why people are buying these houses. In part, that's certainly why private equities buying up Ah, large amount of houses and right so far rental factor has been holding down. The inflation indices, and that's about to change so between the inventory issues, the labor shortage issues the rental issues. I have to say that my concerns about inflation are increasing. Are we contributing to it in part by keeping people on the sidelines because of how much we're reimbursing them for being unemployed. That's something that both president buying a dress this week and secretary of the Treasury yelling did they were both asked pointedly, you're paying people want not to work is that making the situation worse both and thought That's not the problem. I think it's more a matter of having to stay home to take care of kids or elderly. Relatives. What do you make of that? Respectfully. I think it is close to self evident. That the fact that people are being paid Morte to stay at home. And they would be to work in millions of cases is reducing the available supply of labor. I think the fact that the fraction of the unemployed who are getting unemployment insurance is it record highs is contributing to people being more picky. About jobs. You could argue that it's really important relief. You could argue that it's really important insurance that we're providing, but I don't see how one can plausibly say That paying people Morte to not work than toe work is having no effect on the availability of workers. On. I think we just need to recognize that it may probably was the right thing to do when we really wanted people to be very careful to stay home and not spread Cove. It. But I think it's very hard to justify and rationalize them. Uh, right now. Laurie as a macroeconomist. Are you concerned at all? There are models might not really let us know where we are. We're driving the car too fast. Is the speedometer working? Because we haven't seen this sort of phenomenon, perhaps ever in the history of our economy on let's be Frank. The jobs numbers came in very different from what economist thought they were gonna be sometime. We never saw that kind of go down that fast. Come back that fast and goodness knows with all the monetary and fiscal stimulus. Do we really have a model? It tells us where we are and where we're going. Look, I don't I don't think any of us can predict with great precision, and I think overconfidence is a real eyes a real problem. That's why I've always framed my prediction. Probabilistic Lee is a one third chance this all work out. Well, there's a one third chance that we're really gonna push the inflation rate up in the way we did after Vietnam during Vietnam and into the 19 seventies, and there's a one third chance that we're gonna have some kind of Fiscal monetary collision, So I think you gotta recognize that there's uh, uncertainty. I think you can discern Sort of broad structure and trend off the way things are moving, and I think the law of supply and demand is more reliable than most other economic laws. And it sure does seem like demand is rising relative to supply and that's certainly points towards rising prices and some acceleration. Of inflation, So I think that's the tendency but you're absolutely right, David that there are both wild cards that come from the outside, and there are doubts about internal dynamics. And those are things that absolutely have to be factored into the analysis. Um In a clear way. You know another thing to look at just because they reflect Ah, large number of views, and certainly one shouldn't always assume they're right because they're often wrong. Is what's happening in markets and what we're seeing in markets is that because the Fed is so clear about its reluctance to raise rates Um, you're seeing very little movement a nominal rates, but under the surface, you're seeing a reduction in real interest rates..

S added 266,000 jobs during the month of April, far fewer than economists were forecasting. Nations jobless rate went up 6.1%. MPR's Chris Arnold has more on the latest numbers from the Labor Department. This is a much weaker jobs report than expected, most economists predicted a gain of well over a million jobs, so this is just a quarter of that. Also, job gains from prior months were revised a bit lower. There are still about eight million fewer people employed than before the pandemic, and at the same time, businesses say they're having trouble finding people to fill the jobs that they have open. So that's a bit puzzling to economists. Some people are still unable to return to work because their kids aren't back in school or due to covert health risks. Also, more generous unemployment benefits probably have some people waiting to return to work. On the bright side is restaurants and bars reopened they hired on 187,000 more people last month.

"George Floyd's civil rights show. Vin was not part of this court appearance. And the deep red State of Louisiana Yesterday, President Biden said he is sick and tired of corporate America not paying their fair share by defended his plan to raise the corporate tax rate on capital gains rate on the wealthiest Americans to pay for his infrastructure. Focused American jobs plan, punish anybody Entitled Be a Millionaire or billionaire. Just pay your fair share. ABC in his White House correspondent Karen Travers is with us, Karen This is a message that he's repeating more and more. Yeah, it is, You know, on the corporate tax rate increase on taxing the wealthy Americans, Maura. I mean, they're two different things because there's two different proposals here on the president was really talking about the infrastructure proposal yesterday $2.3 Trillion American jobs plan on the president was down there in Red Red Louisiana to try and put some pressure on the Republicans back on Capitol Hill. You know, he's in Lake Charles, standing in front of a bridge that is 20 years past its design life span, and it's handling almost double what Car and truck load that it's supposed to be handling back when it was built in 1952 and the mayor there of Lake Charles. Louisiana, is a Republican who joined a Democratic matter of Shreveport, Louisiana, to stay in an op ed that Congress should pass the president's plan that this money is much needed, and the investments have to happen to fix infrastructure across the country, and we're going to see this a lot where the White House is trying to Highlight local Republican support for their proposals and hope that that puts the lean on Republicans in Washington at this point, not clear that that's working. But the president yesterday said that he wants to talk to his Republican friends as he called them and see how much they're willing to go for to see what their priorities are infrastructure and whether there's room for compromise. Think Republicans pretty clear in recent weeks what they're willing to go for it not to $0.3 Trillion put forward a much, much smaller, more narrowly focused infrastructure proposal that the White House this is not enough. Here. There's a pretty disappointing jobs report out this morning. Do we expect to hear from the president on that soon? I'm not gonna speak in about two hours on the jobs report on and there's been no statement yet from the White House. So wait until the president weighs in on this, you know, the expectation from economists was about a million jobs that would have been created in April. Instead, the report today shows 266,000 jobs. Jobs were added in the leisure and hospitality sectors, local government and education. You know the analysis now in the last hour and 20 minutes, those numbers came out is that there are a variety of Factors that could be playing into this, You know one health concerns. People still nervous to go back to some jobs as they were waiting to get their covert shots and to see what the pandemic situation is Another big thing that our economic reporters are saying, too, is child care in schools that with things still uncertain and kids not fully back in school. That's complicating things for potentially millions of Americans. There's also you know the unemployment insurance benefits that people have been getting $300 a week extended for a couple of months. And what that may be playing eyes a factor for what people are deciding to do about going back to lower wage jobs. Karen. Thanks for the time again this morning.

"Stories on Arizona's news station, Katya our news By the way, I'll address that special Chinese surprise coming up in my sharper point commentary around 7 12 this morning in a presentation to the Economic Club of Phoenix issue economics professor Lei Muk feeders. Said. We're going to be adding lots of jobs to Arizona's economy over the next couple of years. Yeah, I know we've been talking a lot about the national economy and what April brought us. We'll get to that in a second here, But when you look you know, hyper local here 117,000 net jobs this year, he believes they're gonna be added and almost 90,000 next year. Which would put our state back in pre pandemic and employment conditions by the end of this year, possibly early next. But this is what's really interesting, he says. He anticipates our recovery to be a K shaped recovery. If you imagine a K on its back that is with its straight line, representing low wage jobs and the down and then upward line of the K representing middle and high paying jobs, which professor Mick Feeder says they're going to come back much faster. In fact, he says, low wage jobs they're still down 23% from before the pandemic began. And that led him to ask this question that we've asked a few times here on Arizona's morning news and other places here on Katie are whether lower wage workers quote prefer to stay home and draw the equivalent of 12 to $13 an hour in unemployment compensation. That doesn't mean they're lazy. There's some people that are, you know, first off, they're just they're too frightened of the virus to still leave their house. Then you've got people who have got child care issues right now. You know, and they don't. They don't know where they're gonna put their kids to go back to work. Um, and in a story, you can read it. Katie jr dot com. There's some new projections from the Arizona Office of Economic Opportunity that has the state adding more than a half million jobs before the end of the decade. So 3.66 million jobs for Arizona by 2029. That would be up from a decade before in 2019 at a 1.9% growth rate per year over the span four times the national growth rate, So we're anticipating where I do hear really well in Arizona, but We've been talking about the national economic picture this morning. With that April jobs report coming out at 5 30 our time a much higher than expected jobs number in March, But April's number checked in a lot lower than expected. 266,000 jobs added versus one million that were expected. But when we asked the moderator of Meet the press, NBC news political director Chuck Todd about this morning, he told us Every job's report month. Isn't this first sentence written either one of two ways the number of jobs was this surpassing the expectations or falling short of the expectations? Never expectation. Maybe you should never listen to the these economists anymore. E. I mean, you know, we'll sit here will wring our hands about this report and what's gonna happen next month? Oh, don't revise it Upwards of 200, you know. So I do think we're in a weird period. Still, the country's reopening a different times. I kind of think the next couple of months of jobs reports. I mean, really all of the jobs reports until probably Labor Day. When we have these sort of staggered starts and re opening and all of this stuff, we're really not gonna have a clear jobs picture. I think total fallen. However, he agreed that politicians are going to take a wait and see attitude in there today. They're gonna come up with talking points from either side based on this April jobs report..

"Time Now it's 6 30. Live from NPR news in Washington. I'm Dave Mattingly, employers in the U. S added 266,000 jobs during the month of April, far fewer than economists were forecasting. The nation's jobless rate went up to 6.1%. NPR's Chris Arnold has more on the latest numbers from the Labor Department. This is a much weaker jobs report than expected, most economists predicted a gain of well over a million jobs, so this is just a quarter of that. Also, job gains from prior months were revised a bit lower. There are still about eight million fewer people employed than before the pandemic, and at the same time, businesses say they're having trouble finding people to fill the jobs that they have open. So that's a bit puzzling to economists. Some people are still unable to return to work because their kids aren't back in school or due to covert health risks. Also, more generous unemployment benefits probably have some people waiting to return to work. On the bright side is restaurants and bars reopened they hired on 187,000 more people last month.

But barriers to connectivity still remain for millions of residents. Quds Alice Wolfe Lee has more. According to the report around 370,000 households will gain access to high speed Internet because of state and federal broadband projects approved over the last year and a half, But Ernesto Falcone of the Electronic Frontier Foundation Says the report is using outdated metrics when it defines high speed and that cable companies air dragging their feet to avoid the high cost of installing 21st century infrastructure. Data and moving information has never been cheaper, but we don't have the infrastructure in place to actually do it in that neck surgeries, fiber optics, I say about a third of California has, I can infrastructure and two thirds does it.

If it's been delivered to your home, it's likely passed through a warehouse in San Bernadino or Riverside County. The booming goods delivery sector has been an economic driver for the inland empire. But it's also made some of the dirtiest air in the country even more unhealthy under the proposal being considered by the South Coast Air Quality Management District.
