His message comes as protests against anti-lock have erupted across the country, unemployment is rising to over 36 million Americans, and the corona virus continues to grip the nation.
Long lines have been created at unemployment offices across the country, despite orders to stay at home and not go out.
On Sunday, Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell warned in the CBS ’60 minutes that the nation’s unemployment rate could reach 25 percent in the pandemic, with the majority of those affected being people from lower-income households.
“We’ll be publishing a report tomorrow that shows that of those who worked in February and earned less than $ 40,000 a year, nearly 40 percent lost their jobs last month. Extraordinary statistics. So that’s the one that’s most affected by this, “Powell said.

Protests have been seen during protests with signs asking companies to open and locals returning to work in states such as Ohio, North Carolina, Michigan, New York and Washington DC.
President Donald Trump has consistently pushed for states to reopen to get the economy going again, and the mounting turmoil in states reflects the need to get back to work, but worn-out health officials are at risk of a second wave of the pandemic while the country is waiting for a vaccine.
“I would say, although we won’t be returning to where we were soon. We will not be returning to where we were by the end of the year. That’s unlikely, ”said Powell.
“In order for the economy to fully recover, people will have to be confident. And that may have to wait for the vaccine to arrive, ‘he added.
Sajak tweeted several jokes about driving the pandemic out of the house.
On May 10, he tweeted, “I’m so tired of the term” two weeks “(as in” two weeks to smooth the curve, “” we know more about two weeks, “” it will take two weeks … ” . ”Etc, etc.) When this is over, I plan to bring back the word“ two weeks ”so that I never have to use the TW words again. ‘
At the end of last month, he joked about how hard it is to stay at home for celebrities who joke ‘instead of being spoiled and flattered by everyone, we are forced to sit in our house just like ordinary people. Please don’t forget us. ‘
