Secure the Future for Everyday Americans

WASHINGTON – House Republican Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) issued the following statement today after the release of the latest jobs numbers from the Department of Labor:

“Today’s jobs report is further indication that we are far from economic recovery – and that the policies pursued by the Democratic majority in Washington are unfairly hurting everyday Americans the hardest. Americans across this country – recent college graduates struggling to find their first job, moms and dads struggling to support their families, and those who have given up and dropped out of the labor market entirely – are suffering. That’s why Republicans are committed to making sure all Americans have a fair opportunity to get a job and create a secure future.”
