Statement from Governor Martin O'Malley on Preliminary March Jobs Report

Statement

Date:
Location: Annapolis, MD

Governor Martin O'Malley today issued the following statement on the U.S. Department of Labor's release of preliminary employment data for the month of March:

"Last month, Maryland's dynamic private sector continued to drive our job growth, creating 5,100 jobs and bringing the number of private sector jobs in our state to its highest level in nearly five years. Maryland has now recovered 97 percent of the jobs lost during the Bush recession and our unemployment rate, while still too high, is 13 percent lower than the national rate.

"There is no progress without a job. Together with the members of the General Assembly, we had a very productive legislative session where we passed meaningful legislation focused on creating jobs and expanding opportunity. We remain focused on strengthening and growing our businesses, and fueling the job-creating potential of Maryland's world-class innovation economy."
