Kline Statement on October Jobs Report

WASHINGTON, D.C. – House Education and the Workforce Committee Chairman John Kline (R-MN) issued the following statement after the Department of Labor released unemployment data for October 2016:

Our country needs a strong, vibrant economy that provides every man and woman an opportunity to work hard and achieve success. Unfortunately, years of failed policies have put us on the wrong path, limited our full potential, and denied many Americans the prosperity they desperately want for their families.

Fortunately, there is a better way. House Republicans have offered real solutions that will improve access to higher education, lower the cost of health care, empower small businesses to create good-paying jobs, help workers retire with financial security and peace of mind, and more. With the right leadership, we can move this bold agenda forward, set our country on a better path, and help every American pursue a lifetime of opportunity and prosperity.
