Reid Statement On January Employment Report

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Nevada Senator Harry Reid released the following statement on the January employment report. According to the Labor Department, the economy added 157,000 jobs in January. The Labor Department also revised the monthly job growth in 2012 from 142,000 jobs per month to 181,000 jobs per month:

"Our nation's economy continues to recover, but there is still work to be done. To give our economy the running room it needs to get up to speed, we should replace cuts that hurt the middle class with a balanced approach that combines smart cuts with revenue measures that close tax loopholes and ask the wealthy to contribute their fair share. For too many Nevadans and Americans throughout our nation, the recovery isn't a reality until they can rely on a steady paycheck. We will not rest until we make that future a reality."
