Washington, DC- FreedomWorks cheers the recent jobs report by the Bureau of Labor Statistics indicating that in May the U.S. added 223,000 jobs and saw unemployment drop to 3.8%.
This report comes in the months after the ‘Tax Cuts and Jobs Act’ of 2017 was passed into law. The job and unemployment numbers themselves substantially beat expectations.
FreedomWorks President Adam Brandon commented:
“President Trump is making the American economy great again. Since he took office, the economy has added nearly 3 million jobs --3.4 million from the time he was elected.”
“The unemployment rate has fallen to 3.8% for only the seventh time since 1970. This is outstanding news for American workers, especially those in the manufacturing industry, which added 18,000 jobs last month.”
“President Trump and Republicans in Congress are serious about growing the American economy. These are real jobs that have been created, without the help of Democrats’ recently proposed jobs plan. Trump’s regulatory overhaul and last year’s tax reform are already paying dividends for hard working Americans.”
