About JobWatch
EPI's JobWatch web feature tracks current trends in the U.S. labor market and offers up-to-date readings on its status.

  • One component of JobWatch tracks job growth and measures it against the number of jobs the Bush Administration said would be created when their 2003 tax cut proposal was passed by Congress. Specifically, the Bush Administration has claimed that when the cuts went into effect the economy would create 5.5 million jobs from July 2003 through the end of 2004.
  • National Jobs and Wages is a special section devoted to presenting and explaining the essential trends in the current labor market.
