Chairman Crowley Statement on December Jobs Report

January 5, 2018

(Washington, D.C.) – House Democratic Caucus Chairman Joe Crowley (D-NY) issued the following statement on the December jobs report:

“The American economy is unbalanced. Workers struggle to find financial security while special interests, corporations, and the richest among us enjoy lavish tax breaks that do nothing to help the men and women who contribute most to our country and economy.

“When CEOs are out-earning workers 347 to 1, the economy isn’t just unfair and uneven – it’s no longer working for middle-class America. Democrats have a vision for this country that will lift up working men and women by increasing wages, investing in our transportation and infrastructure, and creating an American economy where those who work hard will see the benefits of a rising economy.”
