The U.S. economy added 98,000 jobs in March and the unemployment rate declined to 4.5%, according to figures released this morning by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
While the job growth was tepid in March, and the revisions for the numbers for January and February are weaker than earlier reported, the economy is continuing close to the trend of job growth that started under President Barack Obama. If we continue the trend of job growth over the past seven years he established, the economy will add another 25 million jobs in eight years. Oddly, the claim President Donald Trump has made is that he will create 25 million jobs.
Join Tuesday, April 18, for a live webinar from 2-3 p.m. ET, as the Labor Project for Working Families, the Center for Worklife Law and the AFL-CIO host a workshop on the role that unions can play in promoting protections for pregnant and breastfeeding workers.
