Black employment Is Better Says Biden Labor Secretary

Jun. 10, 2024 – 09:26 – Acting U.S. Labor Secretary Julie Su sits down with theGrio’s “The Hill with April Ryan” to discuss the latest jobs numbers. Su tells theGrio the Black unemployment rate is particularly seeing better days under President Joe Biden’s administration. The acting secretary explains that for Black women, employment in child care has seen a major boost. For Latinos, the construction industry continues to be a large employer, according to the head of the U.S. Department of Labor. According to official Labor Department data, in April 2024: “Both the unemployment rate, at 3.9 percent, and the number of unemployed people, at 6.5 million, changed little in April. The unemployment rate has remained in a narrow range of 3.7 percent to 3.9 percent since August 2023.” When it comes to the current Black unemployment rate, it stands at 5.6%, which is down from the month prior. Watch the entire conversation with Secretary Su on theGrio.com.
