Good morning. As the COVID-19 pandemic takes a toll on life in America, our team at Future Majority is tracking the latest updates:
The unemployment rate is higher than Trump’s Labor Department wanted you to know:
A “misclassification error” made for a misleading unemployment rate. Friday, the Trump administration said the May unemployment rate was 13.3% after a surprising 2.5 million jobs were added. But because the government mistakenly classified 4.9 million Americans who were temporarily laid off as employed, the actual unemployment rate for May was 16.3%. In April, the reported unemployment rate of 14.7% actually was closer to 19.7%.
Democrats introduced sweeping reforms to address police brutality that has led to massive civil rights protests:
House and Senate Democrats introduced a new reform package to address police reform in America.
The Justice in Policing Act of 2020 would ban choke-holds, make it easier to prosecute police misconduct, and establish a national registry to track police misconduct. It would also limit the use of military-grade weapons by state and local law enforcement and tie federal funding to training and adoption of policies and practices to combat racial profiling.
