Rep. Marino responds to Disappointing May Jobs Report

Press Release

Washington, D.C. — According to the Labor Department’s May 2016 Jobs Report, the U.S. added only 38,000 jobs. In addition, the workforce participation rate dropped to 62.6 percent, a near four decade low. Rep. Tom Marino (PA-10) released the following statement in response to the report:

“This month’s jobs report is sickening. Now in the eighth year of the Obama administration, hard-working Americans are still facing economic turmoil and a serious lack of opportunity. President Obama continues to boast about the economic conditions he has created, but his failed policies have nearly halted job growth and dramatically affected our labor force participation. I continue to hear stories all across Pennsylvania’s 10th District of good people struggling to find work or losing their jobs due to cutbacks. American families deserve better. As Chairman of the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Regulatory Reform, I will work to cut the bureaucratic red tape that prevents growth and stifles entrepreneurship.”
