WASHINGTON, DC – House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement today after the Department of Labor released its jobs report for December: 

“While an encouraging indicator of our resilient economy, the final jobs report of 2018 comes as the economy shows unsure signs of its direction.  The Trump Administration’s poorly thought-out economic policies are taking a toll on small businesses, farmers, and working families.  Now that Democrats control the House, we will pursue responsible fiscal and economic policies that expand opportunity for our people and promote certainty in our markets. I urge Republicans to set aside partisanship and strive for common ground in pursuit of this common cause.”
