House Republican Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) released the following statement after President Donald Trump announced his executive order that establishes the President’s National Council for the American Worker and the American Workforce Policy Advisory Board to solve the new challenges faced by American workers.
“Alongside the Trump administration, Republicans in Congress have remained focused on policies to unleash America’s economic potential and bring jobs home. Thanks to our work to cut taxes and rein in Obama-era regulations, the economy is booming and people are better off now. In fact, for the first time in decades, there are now more job openings than people looking for work. We need to keep that momentum going, and make sure American workers are ready to seize new opportunities and succeed. I applaud President Trump for making it a priority to equip more people with the skills they need to move off the sidelines, join the workforce, and achieve their version of the American dream.”
