Capito Responds to Latest Jobs Numbers Released by Department of Labor

Statement

"43--the number of months unemployment has been at or above 8% and the longest period of sustained high unemployment since the Great Depression. $51,000--the amount of debt each American shoulders.

"Today's dismal jobs report and record $16 trillion national debt reinforces the urgent need for pro-growth economic policies that encourage hiring and alleviate uncertainty.

"West Virginia is one of the few places left where family businesses and corner stores still outnumber big businesses. Small business owners across our state tell me they're already struggling to stay afloat with the weight of new and complicated regulations in laws like Dodd-Frank.

"We can't afford another month of disappointing jobs numbers. I hope the President will soon recognize that his policies have taken us in the wrong direction and work with House Republicans to pass policies that will get our economy back on track."
