Washington: US President Joe Biden put a gloss on disappointing job creation figures Friday by specializing in a drop in unemployment, which he stated marks a “signal that our restoration is shifting ahead.”
Whereas the variety of new jobs final month was far under expectations, the unemployment fee fell to 4.8 % — under 5 % for the primary time since March 2020, Biden stated.
“The month-to-month totals bounce round, however in case you check out the development, it is stable,” he stated of the job creation numbers. “If you take a step again and have a look at what’s occurring, we’re truly making actual progress.”
