Trump economy keeps chugging along with 224,000 jobs created as manufacturing spikes

July 5, 2019, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement on the latest jobs numbers:

“The Trump job growth economy keeps chugging along with 224,000 jobs created, 191,000 of those in the all-important private sector.  Most notably, the manufacturing sector added 18,000 new jobs last month after four months of little growth.

“Not only are more Americans working today than a year ago, but a higher percentage of people are working today than last year with the unemployment rate lower over the year for African-Americans, Hispanics, Asians and Whites demonstrating that the President’s policies have worked for all Americans. Wages continue to be on the rise with an average twelve month increase of 3.1 percent, meaning not only are more people working, but they are earning more for their efforts.

“On this day after our national celebration of our independence, it is clear why people were in the mood to celebrate – they are working and making more money in the process.  Not shockingly, cutting taxes and federal government regulations benefit people across all economic strata by unleashing the power of the free market economy.  This is the magic wand that President Trump has waved, and the June employment report confirms once again, that it is working.”
