FreedomWorks Statement in Response to Record 157,878,000 Americans Employed in the Month of August

WASHINGTON, D.C. — In response to the report that a record 157,878,000 Americans were employed in the month of August, an increase of 590,000 from July, Steve Moore, FreedomWorks Senior Economic Contributor, commented:

“This jobs report squashes pessimistic talk of recession. Americans are still working and businesses are still hiring at better than expected rates. Democrats and talking heads are hoping for a recession, which they see as their only path to defeating President Trump in 2020. This report bodes well not only for President Trump, but for American job seekers and businesses across the nation.”
