Chairman Crowley Statement on August Jobs Report

September 1, 2017

(Queens, NY) – House Democratic Caucus Chairman Joe Crowley (D-NY) issued the following statement on the August jobs report:

“Hard-working families are struggling to find financial security. President Trump and Republicans in Congress are giving Americans a raw deal with their relentless focus on destroying the Affordable Care Act and advancing tax cuts that would only benefit the wealthy and corporate special interests instead of the middle class. This is not how we put Americans back to work or grow their paychecks. I urge my Republican colleagues to stop the partisan games and join Democrats in moving forward an agenda that creates more jobs with better wages.”
