The United States’ economic recovery continued under President Trump and the GOP-controlled Congress in September, with new data showing Florida, Texas, and Ohio had record-breaking job gains in recent months.
According to CNS News, Florida and Texas led the country in non-farm jobs from September 2017 to September 2018 and Ohio posted its largest job increase in over 21 years.
“Ohio and Pennsylvania—sometimes considered part of the nation’s ‘Rust Belt’—also saw significant job gains from September 2017 to September 2018, with Ohio showing the largest increase for its state in 21 years and Pennsylvania showing the largest increase in 18 years,” writes CNS.
“Thirty-seven states had over-the-year increases in non-farm payroll employment in September,” added the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
The strong economic data comes just two weeks away from the highly-anticipated 2018 midterm elections, with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi vowing to repeal the “GOP Tax Scam” should her party retake control of Congress.
