Biden Boom: In 1st 15 Months, POTUS Posts Record Job Creation, Lowest Unemployment

The latest jobs report for April released on Friday morning showed that the hiring rate isn’t losing any steam amid the pandemic recovery. In fact, the jobless rate is close to where it was before the pandemic.

President Joe Biden touted the Labor Department’s employment report for April, which showed a gain of 428,000 jobs while unemployment remained at a low 3.6 percent, demonstrating that the market remains remarkably strong and favorable toward job seekers.

President Biden shared the good news in a statement and via Twitter. “Today, we learned that the economy created 428,000 jobs in April – bringing the total number of jobs created since I took office to 8.3 million: record-setting job creation in my first 15 months in office,” the President said in a statement before he appeared at a manufacturing event in Ohio. “Our plans and policies have produced the strongest job creation economy in modern times.”

“There have been only 3 months in the last 50 years where the unemployment rate in America is lower than it is now,” the President said, calling it a “direct result of the American Rescue Plan, our COVID vaccination program, and my plan to grow our economy from the bottom up and middle out.”

President Biden once again called for bipartisan support to get more Americans back on their feet. ‘I encourage Congressional Republicans to join us in our efforts to lower prices for families across the country, by making more in America, strengthening our supply chains, and cutting the energy and prescription drug costs,’ he said.
