“Jobs For Men” Josh Hawley Lays Out What He Wants Conservatives To Restore

Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) has been complaining about the struggles he says men in America face. He recently spoke to say that “attacks on manhood” are driving young men to devote themselves to pornography and video games. Now, he’s doubling down, suggesting that “jobs for men” are somehow under attack.

An editor for American Conservative praised Hawley’s speech in a tweet, calling “brilliant,” “passionate,” and “inspiring,” and summarizing it as a statement on the need for American manufacturing to sustain “working-class jobs for men” as well as “pro-family policy.”

Hawley shared that praise, adding his own emphasis.

He declared that liberals are carrying out an attack on family, manhood, and womanhood, seeming to reiterate talking points against the LGBTQ rights movement, but also called on conservatives to fix the system by “call[ing] men back to work, fatherhood, and responsibility.”

Once again, Hawley’s assertions are belied by data, though. The Wall Street Journal has reported that unemployment claims are declining, actually hitting a “pandemic low” — the lowest rate since March of 2020.

Further, while Hawley seems to believe that it’s “jobs for men” (whatever exactly that means to him) that are under “attack,” Washington Post reported last May that the pandemic has actually had the opposite effect, hitting women the hardest, because many of the jobs most affected are those most likely to be filled by women: waitstaff, hairstylists, and daycare workers among others.

In his full speech, he lists the Me Too movement and the Biden Administration’s vaccine mandate as evidence of the attacks on masculinity, along with declining marriage rates and birth rates, and calls for manufacturing jobs to “employ working men at living wages.”
