RNC Statement on February Jobs Report

- March 6, 2015

WASHINGTON – RNC Chairman Reince Priebus issued the following statement on the February jobs report.

 
“It’s good to see some Americans going back to work, but this report makes it plainly clear that there are far too many Americans who are still looking for jobs,” said Chairman Priebus. “There’s still work to be done to grow the economy. In fact, we learned recently that the economy slowed down in the fourth quarter of 2014, even more than expected.
 
“It’s a shame that President Obama and his party stand in the way of job-creating projects like the Keystone Pipeline. When he vetoed that bill, he also vetoed good jobs.
 
“We also can’t forget that the unemployment rate masks the low labor force participation rate. Too many Americans have given up and stopped looking for work altogether. In fact, in the Obama economy the percentage of Americans in the labor force has shrunk to levels not seen since the 1970s.”
