Hours after the White House received a disappointing jobs report, U.S. President Barack Obama told autoworkers at a Chrysler Plant in Ohio that the U.S. economy is on the right path to recovery. SOUNDBITE: U.S. President Barack Obama saying (English): "Even though the economy is growing, even though it's created more than 2 million jobs over the past 15 months, we still face some tough times. We still face some challenges." (WHITE FLASH EDIT) SOUNDBITE: U.S. President Barack Obama saying (English): "There are still some headwinds that are coming at us. Lately, it's been high gas prices that have caused a lot of hardship for a lot of working families. And then you have the economic disruptions following the tragedy in Japan." Obama made his comments on a day in which the Labor Department reported that only 54,000 jobs were created in May and the U.S. unemployment rate ticked up to 9.1 percent. Many economists are warning that the U.S. economy may be in for a prolonged period of soft growth as employers hired the fewest number of workers in eight months. Jon Decker, Reuters.
