Brady: Jobs Report Shows Workforce Continues to Shrink, Stressing Main Street Businesses

August 05, 2022

Ways and Means Republican Leader Rep. Kevin Brady (R-TX) released the following statement on the Bureau of Labor Statistics July jobs report:

“Even with an unanticipated surge in jobs, America’s work force in July continues to shrink — now three of the last four months — leaving Main Street businesses struggling to find workers.

“The Manchin-Biden Build Back Better bill will worsen the workforce shortage with lavish health care subsidies that provide more affordable health care to the jobless than to those returning to work, on top of crushing tax hikes on ‘Made-in-America’ manufacturers. None of this makes any economic sense.”
