Rep. Harris Statement on May Unemployment Report


Location: Washington, DC

"President Obama's failed policies have led to the longest period of sustained unemployment since the Great Depression. May's dismal unemployment report marks the 40th straight month of 8 percent unemployment in America. It's clear that the President's failed policies are hurting hard-working families. According to a recent Census Bureau report, nearly half of all Americans are classified as poor or low income. A record number of Americans now receive food stamps and the median family income has decreased by over $1,000 since President Obama took office. Americans can no longer afford the President's new normal of high unemployment."
