Texas Democrats Celebrate Positive June Jobs Numbers

AUSTIN, Texas — Today, a new report shows that a robust 850,000 jobs were created in June, the most jobs created in the first 5 months of any presidency in history. Over 3 million jobs have been created since the President took office.

The President’s economic plan, coupled with the success of his national COVID-19 vaccine rollout and the economic boost from the American Rescue Plan, is putting the United States back on track.

The Biden-Harris Administration has led our nation out of the worst crisis in 100 years, and the Congressional Budget Office estimates U.S. economic growth to exceed seven percent — a growth rate unseen since 1984. Consumer confidence is also the highest it’s been in 21 years.

Texas Democratic Party Chair Gilberto Hinojosa issued the following statement:

“This 4th of July, Texans have so much to celebrate thanks to the leadership of President Biden and Vice President Harris. More Americans are back at work, their families are more economically secure, and the successful rollout of COVID-19 vaccines means more people can see their loved ones this holiday weekend. Let’s enjoy this quality time with our friends and family with the good news that we are building America back better.”
