Tom Perez on October Jobs Report

After the U.S. Department of Labor released the latest jobs and unemployment numbers, DNC Chair and former Labor Secretary Tom Perez issued the following statement:

“Without passing any significant economic legislation, Donald Trump is once again taking credit for the strength of the economy he inherited from President Obama. And instead of working to build on our progress by raising wages, making college more affordable, and expanding access to effective job training programs, the president is pushing a tax plan that rewards the wealthy and special interests at the expense of the middle class. Democratic leadership stabilized the U.S. economy after the Great Recession, and Democratic policies are the best way to ensure we don’t see another economic disaster like we did at the end of the last Republican administration.”
