More good news in latest jobs report

Posted By on Fri, Aug 5, 2016 at 8:27 AM

American economic growth is surging, as employers added 255,000 jobs in July, the Labor Department announced today. The jobs growth was more robust than expected. The unemployment was flat at 4.9 percent. Meanwhile, June’s gain was revised upward by 5,000 jobs, and May by 13,000.

This marks a record 70 straight months of job growth (the previous record was 48).

Honestly it seems like some Republican predictions about what Obama would do to the economy have not come true.
