Arizona Democratic Party Statement on July Jobs Report

Executive Director of the Arizona  Democratic Party Morgan Dick released the following statement after the U.S. Department of Labor announced that nonfarm payrolls increased by 187,000 jobs in July, bringing the total jobs created under President Biden’s leadership to over 13.4 million:

“Today’s jobs report confirms once again that Bidenomics is working, and Arizonans are feeling the benefits in their day-to-day lives: more jobs, higher wages, and unemployment at record lows.

“Where the last administration left office with the worst jobs record since the Great Depression, Bidenomics is spurring record job creation that is strengthening Arizonans economy. MAGA Republicans have pledged to undo this progress – and we can’t afford to go back to their failed trickle-down policies.”

Here’s a look at the economic progress our country has made thanks to President Biden and Democrats’ leadership:

  • The US economy added 187,000 jobs in July, bringing the total job created since President Biden took office to a record 13.4 million jobs – including  1.5 million jobs in manufacturing, construction, and engineering.
  • The share of prime working age Americans in the workforce is at its highest level in over 20 years.
  • Unemployment rate has fallen to 3.5% – under 4% for 18 months in a row, the longest stretch in over 50 years,
  • Wages are growing at one of the fastest rates in years, up 4.4 percent over the past year.
  • Annual inflation has fallen by nearly two thirds and is at its lowest point in two years.
