Let's talk Jobs


Recommended Posts

Let's try to keep this civil and fact based.  I found this interesting ...


President Trump can finally say his administration has added 1 million jobs, thanks to a jobs report released by the Department of Labor on Friday.

But while Trump and his surrogates were quick to present this as a huge accomplishment, it is less than meets the eye.

On Sunday, David Bossie, former Deputy Campaign Manager to Donald Trump and chairman of Citizens United went on Fox News and proclaimed that economic growth is “something we haven’t seen in a very long time.”

But the job growth under Trump is actually down slightly from the final 12 months of President Obama’s presidency. As Politico noted,  “an average of 184,000 jobs per month have been created this year, compared to 187,000 in 2016.  If you eliminate January, when President Barack Obama was still in office, the monthly average is a somewhat lower 179,000.”


So jobs growth is actually slowing under Trump.
