Pelosi Statement on October Jobs Report

Washington, D.C. – Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued the following statement today after the Department of Labor announced that the private sector added 159,000 jobs in October, marking the tenth consecutive month of private sector growth.

“With October marking the tenth straight month of private sector job growth, today’s news confirms that Democratic actions have helped bring our economy back from the brink and create jobs for the American people.

“However, we must do much more for those struggling in these difficult times and to strengthen America’s middle class.

“With unemployment remaining unacceptably high, Republicans also must bring their ideas for job creation to the table. And Democrats will strive to find common ground to accomplish our number one priority: putting the American people back to work.”
