Washington, D.C. – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement today after the Department of Labor announced that the economy added a total of 98,000 jobs in March, with only 89,000 private sector jobs added:

“March’s jobs report should serve as a stern warning to President Trump: tweeting is not a strategy to create jobs for hard-working American families.  It’s almost 80 days into the Trump Administration, and the President and the GOP Congress haven’t lifted a finger to create good-paying jobs in our country.

“Instead of creating jobs for the American people, the President and the Republican Congress have spent the entire year trying to raise health costs on seniors and working families.  At every opportunity, Republicans have moved to stack the deck for the powerful and against hard working Americans.

“Democrats believe we should focus every day on job creation and growing paychecks – for everyone, everywhere in our country. We should be creating jobs, rebuilding America’s infrastructure, making the investments that will drive the jobs of the future and unleash the full potential of our country.”
