Labor Department data show that the number of jobless Americans in the United States has fallen by 1.7 million since April.
The report released Thursday showed the unemployment rate has dropped to 6.3 percent, from 7.9 percent in March.
The unemployment rate was previously at 8.1 percent.
The jobs data comes a day after President Trump said his administration would not make the unemployment benefits for people who are laid off during the recession.
President Trump said he would not provide any unemployment benefits to the 1.2 million Americans who lost their jobs during the economic downturn.
Trump said in an interview with Fox News that his administration was going to stop cutting benefits, a reversal of a previous promise.
The Trump administration has cut the number from 7 million to 5 million since the recession began.
But a new report from the Economic Policy Institute shows the number is still at more than 2.3 million, according to data compiled by the government.
The number of Americans on the rolls fell by more than 500,000 last month, while the number on food stamps dropped by more 2.1 million.
The numbers are expected to show the economy continued to recover.
In addition to the jobless rate dropping, the economy also gained the number to be more than 50 percent larger in July, up from 46.9 in June.
The economy added more than $3.2 trillion in gross domestic product in July.
