The unemployment rate for workers over the age of 25 without four-year degrees fell to 3.4%, the lowest in records extending back to 1992, just barely beating out the marks set in the dot-com boom. The unemployment figures are adjusted for seasonal variation.

Viva socialism! Maduro tells Jorge Ramos: New Yorkers have to eat too

The interview concludes when Ramos asks about the Venezuelans who eat garbage. Venezuela has largely run out of food, the product of the government nationalizing most of the nation’s agricultural land and giving it to socialist cronies who have no experience in growing food. Maduro gave the military full control of the nation’s food supply and implement a program called the “fatherland card” to ration the food. Venezuelans also get free food through the Local Committees for Supply Production (CLAPs), who use the food to manipulate civilians into supporting Maduro. Those who reject socialism are left without food. As a result, an estimated thousands of Venezuelans dig through garbage to find something to eat.
