FACT CHECK: No, Biden Didn’t “Create” Record Jobs

June 27, 2024

The vast majority of the jobs “created” under Biden were simply recovered from the pandemic — while wage growth was higher under President Trump.


  • As many as seven-in-ten jobs “created” since the pandemic were recovered, not new jobs.



  • More foreign-born workers have joined the labor force than native-born American workers during the Biden presidency.


  • Overall unemployment is at its highest in more than two years — with unemployment spiking among Hispanic Americans, Asian Americans, veterans, and high school graduates who did not attend college.


  • Labor force participation still remains FAR below pre-pandemic levels.


  • Wage growth was HIGHER under President Trump.


The only way back to prosperity is by re-electing President Donald J. Trump in November.
