Latest Jobs Report At Odds With Claims By Biden

The jobs report recently released by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics was starkly different than the Biden administration and the mainstream media portrayed it, showing a decline in full-time work.

The National Pulse pointed out that in the past 12 months, the number of full-time jobs in the U.S. economy has declined by over 1 million. During this period, the economy garnered 1.09 million part-time jobs.

In March 2024, non-farm payroll employment increased, with the economy adding more than 300,000 jobs. Full-time employment decreased by 6,000 as part-time employment added nearly 700,000 jobs.

The public sector was one of the areas that saw growth in the number of full-time jobs in the U.S. economy. In March 2024, there was an increase of 71,000 government jobs, marking an increase from the 54,000 12 months prior.

Other sectors that garnered an increase in jobs were industries like construction, leisure and hospitality as well as retail. These divisions are mostly known for relying on part-time employment.

The healthcare industry also experienced significant growth, having added 72,000 jobs, according to the National Pulse. It appears that the growth was focused on areas of the industry that rely on part-time workers, such as outpatient care, hospitals and residential care facilities.

Such a trend of adding part-time employment as declines in full-time jobs has occurred for more than a year, likely supporting voter concerns about the trajectory of the economy.

The National Pulse previously indicated that jobs added under the Biden administration have largely come by way of migrant labor.

Former Biden White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain recently acknowledged the difference in claims made by President Joe Biden about the U.S. economy and how American voters feel about it.

“I understand that people say, hey, I’m glad you have all these good things going on in the economy, I’m glad that there are jobs,” Klain said during an MSNBC interview. “But people want to see that their own personal pocketbook is better off.”

Like Klain, former Obama White House advisor Van Jones pointed out, “People keep telling me, ‘You’ve got great employment numbers in the Black community, and aren’t you happy?’ I’m like, yeah, but they’re crappy jobs.”
