REUTERS/Jonathan ErnstU.S. President Joe Biden on Monday will announce efforts to make it easier for employers to hire workers and to help more people take jobs, a White House official said, after Republican criticism amid disappointing jobs numbers last week.
Biden will also discuss the rules of unemployment insurance, according to the official.
The New York Times reported on Biden's expected announcement earlier on Monday, saying the efforts would be related to the continued implementation of his coronavirus relief plan.
Republicans have blamed enhanced unemployment benefits for the numbers, saying the benefits discourage people from returning to work.
