This one’s going to be weird because of the GM strike. But 128,000. Wage increase of six cents is meh. Unemployment rate and labor participation up barely. August and September jobs revised up though so that’s good. But I want to get to what Trump tweeted because he’s ■■■■■■■ misleading people right now:
I think he’s taking the 128,000 for this report, adding in the 95,000 that was revised up from the last two months(which is a really weird way to do it because he’s never mentioned downward revisions that happen all the time) and somehow saying another 80,000 should be added for strike effects.
Presidents don’t have as much control over the economy as a lot people think that they do. Over five million jobs were created during 2015 and 2016 when Republicans had at least 30 Governorship seats, 54 Senate seats, and they still controlled the House. The Unemployment rate dropped from 5.7% down to 4.7% during those two years. But since the President was still a Democrat during those two years, the CEC went on about how bad the economy was.
