FreedomWorks Statement on September Department of Labor Numbers

WASHINGTON, D.C. — In response to the Department of Labor’s recent report that the U.S. economy added 201,000 jobs, and average hourly earnings increased by 2.9% during the month of August, FreedomWorks President Adam Brandon commented:

“Once again, the skeptical Obama administration economists have been proven wrong. The U.S. continues to see record economic growth thanks to last December’s Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.”

“Each of the major economic indicators performed strongly last month. More than 200,000 jobs have been added, wages have increased, and the 3.9% unemployment rate is the lowest since 1969. This is great news for Americans who endured sub-par growth during the previous administration. America is open for business again.”
