Biden falsely claims $  2T infrastructure plan will create 16 millones de puestos de trabajo

Biden ha pedido al Congreso que apruebe aproximadamente $ 2.2 billón en gasto en proyectos de infraestructura física, así como otras metas favorecidas por su administración, como la formación laboral y el cuidado de personas mayores. In his latest pitch, the president claimed theAmerican Jobs Planwould add 16 million jobs to the economy – well above actual projections.

All the economists, including the liberal as well as the conservative think tanks, point out we will create up to 16 million good-paying jobs,” Biden said at the event. “Not $ 8 an hour or $ 12 an hour or $ 15 una hora. Prevailing wage jobs, wages you can raise a family on. My dad would say, just a little bit of breathing room after everything’s paid.

Biden did not specify which studies projected his plan would create 16 millones de puestos de trabajo. But the remark appeared to be a reference to a study conducted by economic research firm Moody’s Analytics, which projected a far smaller number.

An April 2021 report by Moody’s determined the US economy would add roughly 16.3 million jobs through 2030 regardless of whether Biden’sAmerican Jobs Plan” aprobado. The study found the economy would add roughly 2.7 million more jobs, or about 19 million in total, if the infrastructure plan is implemented.

A White House spokesperson did not immediately respond to a request for clarification on Biden’s remarks.

Biden made a similar reference to the Moody’s study at an event earlier this week, de acuerdo a un White House transcript.

You have Moody’s talking about increasing it up to — I don’t know what the most recent one is — 16 million new jobs,” Biden dijo. “It’s about growth, not stunting growth.

White House officials have misrepresented the Moody’s analysis on several occasions in recent weeks. Biden said at an event in early April thatindependent analysisshowed the infrastructure planwill create 19 million jobs.

White House National Economic Council Brian Deese referenced the same 19 million jobs figure during an appearance on “Domingo de Fox News” and attributed the number to Moody’s Analytics.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki later clarified the administration’s remarks at an April 6th briefing.

Moody’s ran an analysis that showed that the economy would create 19 million jobs over the next decade if Congress passes the American Jobs Plan — almost 3 million more than if it doesn’t,” Psaki dijo. “So that is the — that is what the impact would be of the American Jobs Plan: 2.7 millón, to be totally clear.
