RNC Statement on July Jobs Report

- August 7, 2015

CLEVELAND, OH – Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus released the following statement on the July jobs report:

“The untold story of the job market is that while some Americans are thankfully finding jobs, others are finding it impossible to secure enough work. In this sluggish economy, part time workers want to work full time but can’t. Others have dropped out of the labor force because there are no jobs for them, which in turn deceptively drives down the unemployment rate. On top of that, we learned that the last three months saw the slowest wage growth in 33 years. 

“America clearly cannot afford the higher taxes, increased regulation, and additional federal intrusion that Hillary Clinton wants to force on the country. We’ve tried those top-down policies under President Obama, and his economy is leaving the middle class behind. Instead, we need to empower workers, entrepreneurs, and small businesses with pro-growth policies so that they can innovate, expand, and ultimately create good jobs with higher wages. That’s what will create real opportunity for millions of our fellow Americans, and that’s what a Republican president will pursue."
