Job Creators Network Factchecks Biden’s Claim about Creating 14 Million Jobs

Alfredo Ortiz, president and CEO of Job Creators Network, released the following statement fact-checking Biden’s claim in a Wisconsin speech today that his administration has created 14 million jobs:
“President Biden repeated his misleading claim yet again that his administration has created 14 million new jobs. In reality, 9.4 million of the jobs created under Biden are merely backfill jobs temporarily lost during the pandemic. Excluding these post-pandemic job returners, Biden’s job creation numbers are much less impressive, especially when you consider that a disproportionate share has come from unproductive government jobs. The mainstream media won’t hold Biden accountable for his labor market falsehoods, so conservative groups must.”
