Gardner statement on Nov. jobs report


Press Release

WASHINGTON D.C. – Rep. Cory Gardner (R-CO) released the following statement on the national unemployment numbers for the month of November:

“It was encouraging to see a dent made in our nation’s unemployment last month, but the jobless rate remains unacceptably high. Too many people are still out of work, and businesses still worry about economic uncertainty. While the number moved lower, it masks the 300,000 who simply quit looking for employment. We have a lot of work to do to restore confidence and get back to pre-recession levels. The House has passed 20 plus jobs bills that are stuck in the United States Senate, and it is my hope that President Obama calls on the Senate to give these jobs bills the approval they deserve.”
