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.
Jobs and Wages is a special section devoted to presenting and explaining
the essential trends in the current labor market.
