BREAKING: Biden Jobs Boom Keeps Boosting Wisconsin

MADISON, Wis. — Today, Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Ben Wikler released the following statement after the U.S. Department of Labor announced that the U.S. economy added 353,000 jobs in the first month of 2024:

“After Donald Trump’s failures left the U.S. economy in shambles, President Biden’s leadership has delivered for working Wisconsin families month after month by creating record-breaking new jobs, driving up wages, keeping unemployment low, and facing down special interests in order to fight back against rising costs.

“Where Trump left office with the worst jobs record since the Great Depression and sold out working Wisconsin families to give away billions in tax breaks to the ultra-rich and major corporations, President Biden and Vice President Harris have been building our economy from the bottom up and middle out—leading America to dominate on the world stage, with the strongest post-COVID recovery from joblessness and inflation of any industrialized economy. Wisconsinites will help reelect President Biden and Vice President Harris this November because it’s clear that Wisconsin can’t afford to go back to Donald Trump and his trickle-down MAGAnomics agenda.”

Here’s a look at how Bidenomics is delivering in Wisconsin and across the country, where Trump failed miserably:

  • President Biden’s policies have helped create nearly 15 million jobs, including 162,800 in Wisconsin alone. Trump had the worst jobs record since the Great Depression and is rooting for the economy to crash.
  • Under President Biden, the national unemployment rate has been under 4 percent for the longest stretch in 50 years in part due to his administration’s historic investments that have created 800,000 manufacturing jobs and another 875,000 in construction and engineering. Trump’s tax scam incentivized companies to ship American jobs overseas.
  • When Donald Trump was in office, his only accomplishment was giving billionaires and corporations tax handouts. President Biden, on the other hand, is investing in hardworking middle-class families while making sure billionaires and corporations finally pay their fair share in taxes.
