Jul 03 2014

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), Vice Chair of the U.S. Congress Joint Economic Committee (JEC), released the following statement on the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ June 2014 jobs report showing that 288,000 total nonfarm jobs were added and the unemployment rate fell from 6.3% to 6.1%:

“Today’s employment report marks 52 consecutive months of private-sector job growth and shows our economy is on stronger footing as we head into the summer. But as I said when the President visited Minnesota last week, too many working families are still treading water. Our focus now must be on solutions that strengthen the middle class and give more hardworking Americans a fair shot by raising the minimum wage, making college more affordable, and investing in workforce training.”
