Across the country, local news outlets are reporting on  how the historic Biden economic recovery has led to another consecutive month of historic job growth and record low unemployment in several states.

In September, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics:

  • 17 states had unemployment rates at or below 3 percent.
  • 11 states and the District of Columbia either set new records or matched records for their lowest unemployment rates since the beginning of the state data series in 1976.
  • All 50 States and the District of Columbia had their unemployment rate decrease or remain unchanged from a year earlier.

This data is further proof that President Biden’s economic agenda is working, and that the U.S. economy is moving from a historically strong economic recovery to more steady and stable growth.

Jared Bernstein also touted the president’s work to decrease the deficit by a record $1.4 trillion. “Wisconsin is a good example of that where we have an unemployment rate of close to three percent in the state, lot of people work which means they’re drawing paychecks and it also is good news for deficit reduction so we’re glad to see that,” said Jared Bernstein, member of the president’s council of economic advisors.
