The Facts Machine

"And I come back to you now, at the turn of the tide"

Wednesday, May 05, 2004

Jobs data for April is trickling in, and the early word is that the economy added about 170,000 jobs last month. A steep dropoff from March's impressive number (308,000), but but still a smidgen above what is needed to keep up with the growing workforce.

Keep in mind, of course, that when Bush was pushing his latest round of tax cuts last year, he claimed they'd create an average of 306,000 jobs per month. We've had exactly one month of job growth on that level (March) with no other month even coming close.
