Wisconsin Democrats Applaud Biden, Evers for July Jobs Numbers 

MADISON, Wis. — According to this morning’s jobs report, Wisconsin added 13,100 jobs in July. Compared to July 2020, Wisconsin has added over 104,000 over the past year. 

This economic recovery is echoed across the country, as all 50 states and the District of Columbia saw jobless rates decrease from this time last year. The economy is building back better thanks to President Biden’s pandemic relief efforts, congressional Democrats’ American Rescue Plan, and Governor Evers’ support for small businesses across the state. 

Thanks to Democrats, Wisconsin is on the road to economic recovery:

Democratic Party of Wisconsin Rapid Response Director Julia Hamelburg released the following statement: 

“While Wisconsin Republicans like Sen. Ron Johnson, Rep. Mike Gallagher, and Derrick Van Orden continue to peddle baseless conspiracy theories and curry favor with wealthy donors, Democrats are focused on delivering for Wisconsin’s working families. Today’s jobs report is further evidence that thanks to President Biden and Governor Evers, Wisconsin is bouncing back as vaccination rates continue to increase and people are getting back to work.”
