Arizona Democratic Party Statement on June Jobs Report

Today, the Arizona Democratic Party chairwoman, Yolanda Bejarano released the following statement after the U.S. Department of Labor announced that nonfarm payrolls increased by 209,000 jobs in June, bringing the total jobs created under President Biden’s leadership to over 13.2 million:

“Today’s strong jobs report is yet another example of Bidenomics in action. With these new good-paying jobs adding to the millions that have been created over the past two and a half years and unemployment near a record low, families all across Arizona are reaping the benefits of the Biden boom.

“Arizonans haven’t forgotten what it was like under Donald Trump and MAGA Republicans’ economy: broken promises, tax handouts to the biggest corporations that left middle-class families behind, and the highest unemployment since the Great Depression. Now Republicans are trying to roll back our progress with policies that could outsource jobs and raise costs on families. Despite their efforts, President Biden, Vice President Harris, and Democrats are continuing to build our economy from the bottom up and the middle out.”

Here’s a look at how Bidenomics is delivering across the country:

  • The US economy added 209,000 jobs in June, bringing the total job created since President Biden took office to a record 13.2 million jobs – including nearly 800,000 good-paying manufacturing jobs.
  • The share of prime working age Americans in the workforce is at its highest level in over 20 years.
  • The unemployment rate has been under 4 percent for 17 months in a row – the longest stretch of low unemployment since the 1960s.
  • Wages are growing at one of the fastest rates in years, up 4.4 percent over the past year.
  • Annual inflation has fallen for 11 months in a row and is down by more than half since last summer.
