Fox News Research

@FoxNewsResearch
Average Monthly #Job Gains
-by year

•2017: 171,000
•2016: 187,000
•2015: 226,000
•2014: 250,000
•2013: 192,000
•2012: 179,000
•2011: 174,000
Even Trump’s favorite TV network — Fox News, which largely covers him uncritically — acknowledges that average monthly job gains during Trump’s first year were the least since 2010.


From The Bureau of Labor Statistics-
Jobs Created-
2011- 2.09 million
2012- 2.14
2013- 2.30
2014- 2.99
2015- 2.71
2016- 2.24
2017- 2.05 million projected

During the Obama years, Trump routinely argued that government data showing the job market steadily pulling out of the Great Recession were fake — he called the BLS’ unemployment rate “one of the biggest hoaxes in American modern politics.” But in March, then-Press Secretary Sean Spicer clarified that while the numbers “may have been phony in the past,” they are “very real now.”

In other words, Trump has already foreclosed the possibility of dismissing his unimpressive job creation record as fake news. Sad!

If our current job market matches where I work, we’ll all being doing more with less. Funny how unemployment is still hovering around 4%. Must be those baby boomers leaving the workforce in droves.

Lol at the dumb@ss who thought 6 million jobs had been created after 100 days. We only got 2 million for the year.

The current rate of jobs increase barely keeps up with the number of people entering the job market for the first time. The economy has to produce over 125,000 each month just to keep pace with new workers entering the market. When you take in the 125,000 needed to keep pace with new workers entering the market and add the 300,000 who quit working last month. A growth of 150,000 is very pathetic.
