President Obama says he’s is considering new ways to grow US jobs, amid signs that America’s economic recovery has weakened. “On Monday, I?ll travel to North Carolina, where I?ll meet with my Jobs Council and talk about additional steps we can take to spur private sector hiring in the short-term and ensure our workers have the skills and training they need in this economy,” the President said.
He further added that the people in the country needs to be patient about the economic recovery; the recession didn?t happen overnight and wont end that way, either- the President said in his weekly radio and online address.
According to a recent poll; a general disapproval was found with Obama?s handling of the economy. The job growth had fallen in May and the unemployment rate had touched a 9.1 percent.
No president since World War II has won a second term with an unemployment rate above 7.2 percent, and Obama’s options for achieving faster economic growth before the November 2012 election appears limited.
