Begich Statement on December Jobs Report
Unemployment Lowest in 4 years
U.S. Senator Mark Begich today released the following statement on this month’s jobs report:
“Despite the critics and naysayers who want to say otherwise, today's announcement that the US economy has added 146,000 jobs and unemployment fell to 7.7% is yet another positive sign of economic growth,” said Begich.
“This is great news for Alaska families just before the holidays. I also hope this serves as a reminder to those who are playing politics with the middle class tax cuts of just how far we have come and why can't turn back now. We must keep moving forward.”
