Even the right-leaning Associated Press can’t ignore the facts: The Obama recovery is in full-swing. I’m sure it was painful to admit, but this is the title they were forced to use when the latest job numbers came out: Employers added most jobs in 3 years in March.
According to the Labor Department, employers added 162,000 jobs in March, the most in a single month since the recession began back in 2007.
For all those skeptics, Census jobs were far fewer than experts expected. There were significant gains in the fields of manufacturing, health-care, hospitality, and even construction. For all those skeptics, the revised numbers for the past couple of months were actually higher than original estimates. For all those skeptics, the average work-week increased to 34 hours from 33.9.
Bottom-line: Bush policies got us into a mess, Obama’s polices got us out of it.
