WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator John Barrasso (R-WY), chairman of the Senate Republican Conference, issued the following statement regarding the June jobs report:
“June’s jobs report brings more good news for American workers. Beating expectations, 224,000 new jobs were added last month and the unemployment rate remains near a 50-year low. Paychecks for American workers continue to grow as wages rise.
“Pro-growth Republican policies like tax reform and regulatory relief have made it easier for American job creators to grow and hire. With 7.4 million open jobs in the United States, this is a great time to be looking for work in America’s strong, healthy, and growing economy.”
