President Donald Trump has some ideas on how businesses can get ahead and hire more workers in a fast-paced world, calling for companies to hire more people, create jobs and grow.
In a Monday interview with CNN, Trump laid out his strategy to boost employment in the US, noting that he expects a job growth rate of nearly 7% during his first year in office.
But the president also noted that it’s difficult to get employees to stay and be productive because of an economy that is “very, very fragile.”
“We are going to have to get people back into the workforce,” Trump said.
“That’s really, really hard.
That’s very hard to do.”
Trump noted that he’s had the chance to see the jobs created by other countries and that it seems like many of the workers that are in these countries are happy to stay, but aren’t willing to be there.
“They’ve had these great countries come in, and they’ve had a lot of jobs and they’re all very, very happy to have them,” Trump told CNN.
“And I think, you know, we’re going to be working very hard and we’re very, really good at it.”
The president said that his administration is looking to the United Kingdom and Germany as examples of countries that have taken steps to get their people back to work and create more jobs.
“We’re going into Germany to Germany and to France and to Germany,” he said.
“The UK and Germany are going through a very, much better situation than we are.”
The UK has added 1.8 million jobs since the beginning of the year and Germany has added more than 2 million jobs.
