Schumer Statement On New Jobs Report

July 2, 2020

Washington, D.C.— Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer today released following statement in response to the latest jobs report, warning that unless President Trump and Republicans finally work with Democrats to provide additional federal fiscal relief, the economic pain in America will only worsen:

“Today’s jobs report may just be a slight peak in a much larger valley, and unless President Trump demonstrates real leadership in fighting the health crisis and Senate Republicans get off their hands and finally work with Democrats to quickly provide additional federal fiscal relief, the pain America is experiencing will only worsen. President Trump must not repeat the same mistakes with this economic crisis that he made initially with COVID-19—ignoring it and brushing it aside now will only ensure that things will get worse once again.”
