The July jobs report marked two new milestones in the economic recovery: First, the number of Americans working exceeded the pre-pandemic number. Second, the unemployment rate is 3.5%, back to its pre-pandemic low.
Today, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the American economy added 528,000 jobs in the month of July, and the unemployment rate ticked down to 3.5 percent.
This robust and sustained job growth is built on the Biden-Harris administration’s progress getting people vaccinated and investing in America’s workers, businesses and communities.
