(Washington, D.C.) – House Democratic Caucus Chairman Joe Crowley (D-NY) issued the following statement on the July jobs report:

“President Trump and congressional Republicans’ policies fail to match their rhetoric every single time. This president promised to expand economic opportunity and lift up working families, yet his policies have only focused on benefitting the super-rich instead of hardworking Americans. Every American should have the opportunity to secure a good-paying job that meets their family’s day-to-day needs and still allows them to save for their retirement. That’s what Democrats are fighting for with our ‘Better Deal’ agenda, and we welcome Republicans to join us in this effort.”
