San Francisco – Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued this statement after the Department of Labor issued its June jobs report:
“The June job numbers are an improvement over May’s dreadful report, but hard-working Americans are still struggling under the Trump Administration’s disastrous special interest agenda.
“As the cost of living soars, too many hard-working Americans are being forced to work multiple jobs just to provide for themselves and their families. While the wealthy and well-connected have been further enriched by the GOP’s special interest giveaways, hard-working men and women earning the federal minimum wage are falling further and further behind. Our economy must work for everyone, not just the wealthy and privileged few.
“Our Democratic Majority is fighting For The People to lower the price of prescription drugs and protect people with pre-existing conditions, to raise wages by rebuilding America with green, modern, job-creating infrastructure, and to clean up corruption in Washington. We will continue to work to deliver results for the American people on the issues that matter in their lives. By advancing bold legislation to protect the health and financial stability of American families, we will build a future of prosperity and opportunity for all.”
