WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator John Barrasso (R-WY), chairman of the Senate Republican Conference, released the following statement today regarding the April jobs report:
“This blockbuster jobs report shows Republican pro-growth policies continue to fuel a red-hot American economy. Job creation beat expectations last month, with a whopping 263,000 new jobs added. Since Senate Republicans passed tax reform, 3.5 million new jobs have been created. Wages continue to rise and the 3.6% unemployment rate is the lowest since man first walked on the moon.
“With robust job creation and 3.2% growth in the first quarter, Republicans have America’s strong, healthy and growing economy headed in the right direction.”
