Economists and politicians alike were shocked by the unexpectedly tepid April jobs report released Friday, which showed that the economy only added about a quarter the number of jobs most were expecting.

businesses added just 266,000 new jobs in April instead of the roughly 1 million that economists had projected.

The jobs report shed light on some of the current trouble spots, though economists say more data is needed to know exactly what’s going on.

She said the evidence shows that women and working families need the enhancements to child care, education and other issues provided by Biden’s proposals, and that this would in turn create jobs and help the economy.

“Today’s report just underscores, in my view, how vital the actions we're taking are,” he said.
