America Works

Jeff Wrase at the Joint Economic Committee emails this morning with good news – the lowest levels of unemployment in over five years. The Bureau of Labor Statistics report out today on jobs finds that the U.S. economy has dropped to an extremely low 4.4% unemployment rate, and that employers have created 157,000 new payroll jobs per month over the last three months.

As it turns out, both France and Germany are also celebrating declining jobless numbers this week. Those progressive European nations with their generous social welfare benefits are down to unemployment figures of 8.8% and 9.8%, respectively.
