The Quick Facts

  • The US economy added 224,000 jobs in June, according to the latest jobs report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
  • This is nearly three times as many jobs as were added in the previous month, and nearly double economists' expectations.
  • The economy also set a new record for the longest period of economic growth in US history.
  • The unemployment rate rose one tenth of a percentage point, but still remains at a very low rate of 3.7%.

Food For Thought

Who deserves credit (if at all) for today's economy? What does it mean for the 2020 election?
