Brady: August Jobs Blowout Helps Workers, Beats Expectations

September 4, 2020 — Press Releases   

The Woodlands, TX–Ways and Means Republican Leader Kevin Brady (R-TX) issued the following statement on the August jobs report released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics:

“With 1.4 million new jobs in the August jobs report, we have recovered nearly half of the jobs lost at the lowest point of the pandemic in March. A fourth consecutive month of job growth combined with a two year high in U.S. manufacturing is good news for American workers, despite Speaker Pelosi’s irresponsible efforts to sabotage the economy. I urge Speaker Pelosi to focus on bipartisan efforts to help workers and families and stop her political games.”
