Washington, D.C. – Today, House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady (R-TX) released the following statement in response to the Labor Department’s May 2018 jobs report:
“This is a good report that reflects Republicans’ goals for tax reform: more jobs and higher wages. In addition to solid jobs gains, the big boost to investment in the first quarter of 2018 should lead to higher productivity – meaning even bigger paychecks for our workers in the future. This economy is finally helping our families and businesses get ahead, and we look forward to taking steps to build on this momentum.”
Note: The U.S. Department of Labor reported today that the economy added 223,000 jobs in May and the unemployment rate was 3.8 percent.
