This Friday marks the six-month anniversary of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, a GOP-led effort to create jobs and put more money back in the pockets of hard-working Ohioans, and an effort Sherrod Brown stood in strong opposition to. Thanks to the historic tax cuts, the labor market has added more than a million jobs since the legislation’s passage, far outpacing job growth during the same period in 2017. For the first time in 20 years there are more job openings than workers looking for jobs.
