Nevada Senator Harry Reid released the following statement on Nevada's May employment report. According to the Nevada Department of Education, Training and Rehabilitation, Nevada's Unemployment Rate has decreased to 9.5%, the lowest number since 2008:
"Nevada's economy is continuing to add jobs, and today's announcement is encouraging news. But the economy is not adding jobs as quickly as it should and we must do more to create jobs and help our economy grow. We can continue moving toward a full recovery if we make smart choices to boost our economy. As I've said before, Republicans should work with Democrats to replace the sequester with a balanced solution that combines smart cuts with revenue measures that close tax loopholes benefiting the wealthiest Americans. A balanced plan is the way to fund investment in our economy, and in Nevada to stimulate the job growth we need."
