Washington, D.C. – PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN: Hello, folks. Good morning. Today, we received great news for our economy and our recovery, and for the American people.
This morning, we learned that, in May, our economy created 559,000 new jobs, the unemployment rate fell to 5.8 percent, and wages went up for American workers. That means we have now created over 2 million jobs in total since I took office — more jobs than have ever been created in the first four months of any presidency in modern history, triple the rate of my predecessor, eight times the rate of President Reagan.
President Joe Biden’s American Jobs Plan will Produce, Preserve, Retrofit more than 2 Million Affordable Housing Units, Create Good-Paying Jobs
Washington, D.C. – Even after the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic, tens of millions of Americans will struggle to access affordable, safe, energy efficient, and resilient housing.
Across the country, 11 million families pay more than half their income on rent, 3 million families with children under six reside in homes with lead paint, thousands of working families are displaced every year as a result of extreme weather fueled by climate change, and millions of families cannot afford to purchase their own homes.

Washington, D.C. – We’ve all seen it. Two words written in bright red letters, posted at the front of nearly every hardware store, grocer, or boutique in town: “HELP WANTED.” While some in the White House want to pass off the current labor shortage as an anomaly, Tennesseans know better. We are in the midst of a labor crisis.
April’s jobs report revealed that the forces driving our economy are coming to a screeching halt. Job growth expectations fell drastically short, and unemployment rates climbed above six percent.
Nashville, TN – Tennessee’s statewide unemployment rate for April 2021 decreased by double digits when compared to data from the previous year. In April 2020, the state’s jobless rate reached a record high during the economic disruption caused by the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic.
Washington, D.C. – PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN: Good afternoon. It’s exactly 12:00. I want to — I want to put today’s jobs report in perspective. And — look, when we came to office, we knew we were facing a once-in-a-century pandemic and a once-in-a-generation economic crisis. And we knew this wouldn’t be a sprint; it would be a marathon.
Quite frankly, we are moving more rapidly than I thought we would. This morning, we learned that our economy created 266,000 jobs in April. It hadn’t been adjusted again yet, but that’s what it says: 266.
Washington, D.C. – President Joe Biden.
Madame Vice President.
No president has ever said those words from this podium, and it’s about time.
The First Lady. The Second Gentleman. Mr. Chief Justice. Members of the United States Congress and the Cabinet – and distinguished guests.
My fellow Americans.
While the setting tonight is familiar, this gathering is very different – a reminder of the extraordinary times we are in.
Washington, D.C. – As America works to recover from the devastating challenges of a deadly pandemic, an economic crisis, and a reckoning on race that reveals deep disparities, we need to summon a new wave of worker power to create an economy that works for everyone.
We owe it not only to those who have put in a lifetime of work but to the next generation of workers who have only known an America of rising inequality and shrinking opportunity.
