Brady Statement on March 2019 Jobs Report

April 05, 2019

Washington, D.C. – Today, the top Republican on the House Ways and Means Committee Kevin Brady (R-TX) released the following statement in response to the Labor Department’s March 2019 jobs report: 

“With 196,000 jobs being added in March and wages continuing to rise for working moms and dads, today’s report shows that this strong economy still has room to run. 

“While Democrats continue their misguided efforts to impeach a President who has turned this economy around after years of stagnation, Republicans are going to continue to put forth policies to ensure this economy continues to work for families and Main Street businesses.

“Since the GOP Tax Cuts were signed into law, paychecks keep growing and labor force participation rate is staying put at a higher rate – showing not only that people are going back to work, but remaining in these good-paying jobs.”

Note: The U.S. Department of Labor reported today that the economy added 196,000 jobs in March and revised up February’s outlier report to 33,000.  The unemployment rate was 3.8 percent, near a 50-year low.
