Statement on March Jobs Report and Sequester Cuts to Unemployment Insurance Programs

Statement

Congressman Sander Levin (D-MI) today issued the following statement regarding the March jobs report and the cuts to unemployment insurance programs because of the sequester:

"Republican willingness to stop governing and simply let the sequester roll over our economy threatens to stall the economic recovery. The unwillingness of Congressional Republicans to work toward a sensible alternative to the sequester hits the economy and the unemployed with a double dose of bad news. First, it is threatening to stall a labor market that had been improving. And second, the sequester directly cuts unemployment benefits for the long-term unemployed by over 10 percent. This further hurts Americans who are already suffering, and it undercuts our economic recovery."
