Barack Obama's Record on Jobs

After taking office, President Obama signed the Recovery Act to help get our economy back on track. As a result:
  • The U.S. has seen 22 consecutive months of private-sector job growth.
  • The private sector added more than 3.1 million jobs over those 22 months.
  • Manufacturing added 334,000 jobs in the last two years, the first time since 1997 that manufacturing employment rose.
The President passed legislation to create jobs and support working Americans, including:
  • A payroll tax cut for all working families, providing the average working family with a $1,000 tax cut in 2011
  • Expansion of small business loan programs to help small businesses access credit and create jobs
  • Initiatives to help veterans transition to post-service careers
  • Tax incentives for businesses that hire unemployed veterans
The President made the decision to provide emergency loans to the auto industry:
  • Saving more than 1.4 million American jobs
  • Preventing personal income losses over two years of more than $96 billion
  • Helping make the big three (Chrysler, GM, and Ford) all profitable for the first time in years
