President Joe Biden praised his job creation record in Philadelphia on Monday, as inflation continues to hurt the pockets of everyday Americans.
The president gave the remarks as part of a speech commenting on the importance of workers in the economy, according to ABC News. The president laid out his administration’s track record on infrastructure and praised the economic recovery from the coronavirus pandemic. The president hoped to gain traction with working class voters that the Democrats have struggled with in recent years.
“This Labor Day we’re celebrating jobs, good-paying jobs, jobs you can raise a family on, union jobs,” Biden said.
