FreedomWorks Statement in Response to Dismal April Jobs Report

WASHINGTON, D.C. — In response to the April jobs report released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, which indicates a stagnating rate of job growth at 266,000 jobs added, falling far short of the projected mark of one million jobs added, Adam Brandon, FreedomWorks President, commented:

“Government paying people more to stay home than to work has crushed the ability of businesses to get workers back, and this jobs report is evidence of that. Such disappointing news is exactly what we have warned Democratic policies would do to our recovery for nearly a year now.

“There is no excuse for these abysmal jobs numbers as our economy reopens and businesses are actively seeking workers. President Biden should be ashamed.”
