Chairman Crowley Statement on January Jobs Report

Feb 2, 2018 Issues: Economy and Jobs

(Queens, N.Y.) – House Democratic Caucus Chairman Joe Crowley (D-NY) released the following statement on the January jobs report:

“Despite the Potemkin landscape President Trump painted in his State of the Union, too many hard-working Americans are not feeling the economic gains their families so desperately need.

“Americans deserve a strong and stable economy and the opportunity to succeed. But Republicans have failed to deliver on that promise. They are distracted by political gamesmanship that serves special interests and corporations instead of helping families afford quality health care and education, helping communities expand job training opportunities and resources, or helping raise wages and grow the economy for all Americans.”
