Biden touts employments but focuses on vaccines
6 August 2021
President Biden delivered a sober message Friday in his July employment report, saying the nation needs to vaccinate more people to maintain strong economic growth.
“My message today is not one of celebration. It’s one to remind us we got a lot of hard work left to be done both to beat the delta variant and to continue our advance of economic recovery,” Biden said in remarks from the White House. “This is a pandemic of the unvaccinated, so we have to get more people vaccinated.”
The number of new jobs surpassed economists’ projections by more than 70,000, and June’s number was also bumped up, signaling the continued rebuilding of the American workforce over the early summer.
