The latest jobs report for the month of May is out now, and it’s good news for Americans across the board, which means our path to economic recovery is ongoing.
The U.S. economy added 75,000 jobs and the unemployment rate held at 3.6 percent thanks to the data released by the Department of Labor earlier on Friday.
That’s a killer way to kick off the weekend!
Here’s more from the Daily Caller:
Jobs numbers for April were 263,000 jobs added, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics report. After a decline in April, the number of persons unemployed for less than five weeks increased by 243,000 up to 2.1 million. The number of adults working or looking for work remained steady at 62.8%, according to the Labor Department.
The May jobs report comes on the heels of April’s job report that showed the lowest unemployment numbers in 50 years. The U.S. economy added 263,000 jobs in April, while the unemployment rate fell to 3.6 percent. Economists had predicted only 190,000 jobs added and a continued unemployment rate of 3.8 percent.
Job growth has come back strong after February, when just 33,000 jobs were added.
The unemployment rate has held steady between 4 percent and 3.7 percent for more than a year before the April jobs report showed it drop to 3.6 percent. Prior to April’s report, the consistent unemployment rate suggested that workers are jumping back into the workforce to fill open jobs, rather than the workers who are currently collecting unemployment welfare, according to WSJ.
Trump’s time in office continues to prove to be a major factor in our nation’s recovery, yet despite all of the good things he’s done during his time in office, the left still refuses to give him credit for his accomplishments.
Instead, they attempt to take what he’s done and pass it off to former President Barack Obama, the same guy who got us into this mess in the first place.
What will it take for the left to finally admit that Trump isn’t as bad of a president as they try to make him out to be?
