President Highlights Strong U.S. Economy and Pro-Growth Policies
Today, we received a new report that confirms the continued strength of the American economy. The November jobs report showed that 132,000 more Americans found work last month, and that job creation in previous months was stronger than first estimated, adding 42,000 jobs to the numbers released last month. The unemployment rate remained low at 4.5%. This is good news for American workers, and they are also seeing good news in their paychecks. As we look forward, our goal is to maintain the pro-growth policies that have strengthened our economy and will stimulate the creation of good jobs and higher wages.
