The US jobs report came out Friday demonstrating a 943,000 increase in jobs and 5.4% in unemployment. While the data isn’t still back to pre-pandemic norms, jobs have steadily increased since January. The Dow Jones estimated fewer jobs and a higher unemployment rate.
First, of all non-farm jobs, the leisure and hospitality industry did best in July. It added 380,000 positions. As a result of COVID-19 restrictions ending, 253,000 of those came from bars and restaurants. The industry also did exceptionally well in May.
“More jobs than have been created in the first four months in any presidency in modern history.” Conveniently, he left out the historic job losses that happened leading up to his inauguration.
Back in May, President Biden responded to disappointing numbers. Then, Biden blamed the number on vaccination rates, since the data was collected during the first week in May. Back then, Biden said, the vaccination rate for adults was only 35%. By the end of May, it was reported to be at 63%. Now, the vaccination rate has reached 70%.
“We’re now the first administration in history to add jobs every month of our first six months in office,” Biden tweeted Friday. It’s a talking point he’s said in previous months as well. However, the historic job losses leading up to his inauguration should also be taken into consideration.
Meanwhile, two years ago in July, the unemployment rate was 3.7%. Yet there were only 164,000 jobs created then. Just last year over the US saw 1.7 million new jobs in July. But 10.2% of Americans were unemployed.

Massachusetts Democrat Mayor wants to end ‘right-to-shelter’ law amidst migrant crisis
More Democrat leaders from non-border states are wising up to the immigration crisis our nation faces. Woburn mayor Scott Galvin, of the progressive state of Massachusetts, is hoping that lawmakers will overturn a 40-year-old law because the reality of being “bleeding heart liberals” is resulting in the demise of his town.
The 40-year-old “right-to-shelter” law has got to go, says mayor Galvin, because of the immense strain the thousands of migrant families are putting on the area’s residents. By Friday, there were about 150 families living in the city’s hotels, an “unsustainable” arrangement for his 40,000 constituents.
Galvin told the New York Times the right-to-shelter law, which only exists in Massachusetts, was “passed at a different time, and was not meant to cover what we’re seeing now.”
National Review reports:
Under the 1983 right-to-shelter law, Massachusetts officials are legally required to offer housing to any homeless families seeking shelter in the state. The law now covers a rising influx of migrant families, although individuals are not covered under its provisions.
“We’re going above and beyond, while some communities around us are not being impacted, and we don’t have endless capacity in our schools,” said Galvin. “The benefits that are bestowed on migrants make the state a very attractive destination, and without some changes, this challenge is not going to abate.”
Massachusetts Democrat Governor Maura Healey already declared a state of emergency on August 8th, requesting help from the federal government. On August 31, Healey activated up to 250 Massachusetts National Guard members to assist the more than 6,000 migrant families already in the state’s shelter system.
Approximately 6,300 families are living in emergency shelters and hotels across the state, up roughly 50 percent from the year prior. The cost for such accommodations for all the migrants is approximately $45 million per month, National Review reports.
