Today Congressman John B. Larson released the following statement on the U.S. Department of Labor's October employment report, showing that the U.S. economy added 171,000 jobs in October:
"Today's report shows employers are hiring more Americans than expected. This is encouraging news and marks the thirty second straight month of private sector job growth.
"As more Americans look to reenter the work force after the worst recession since the Great Depression we must continue to move forward and not return to the failed policies that got us into this mess. Congress must work together to help our nation recover and bring certainty back into American homes and businesses."
