Congressman Cantor: Today's Jobs Report Looks Good On The Surface, Details Show Otherwise

Statement

Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Eric Cantor (VA-7) today released the following statement on the latest unemployment report:

"While the unemployment number dropping looks good on the surface, the details show otherwise. Persistent long-term unemployment, discouraged people leaving the workforce, and millions taking part-time jobs because they have no choice are not signs of a strong recovery. The President's policies are holding back strong job creation.

"Just this week, the House passed legislation to limit out of control government regulations which are holding back domestic energy production and job creation and harming working middle class families. Earlier this month, the House voted to delay Obamacare's employer mandate which is turning a full-time workforce into a part-time workforce. We've passed legislation this year to reform job training programs and build the Keystone Pipeline. While the President is giving speeches, Republicans are taking action. It's time for Democrats to join this effort and support these common sense job creating measures."
