DNC Chair Rep. Wasserman Schultz’s Statement on the November Jobs Report

Washington, DC – After the release of the November jobs report, which showed that 321,000 jobs were added last month, the highest single month of job creation in nearly three years, and the unemployment rate held at 5.8 percent – a six year low, DNC Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz released the following statement:

“This is what progress looks like. Our economy has added nearly 11 million private-sector jobs over 57 months of straight job growth. That’s the longest streak on record and it didn’t happen by accident. We’ve added 2.65 million jobs in the past 11 months alone, putting 2014 on pace to be the strongest year for job growth since 1999.  It happened because of the hard work and determination of the American people and the President’s policies over the last six years that have gotten our economy moving again. 

“As a nation, we still have a lot of work to do. While Democrats continue to fight for common sense proposals that would help grow our economy over the long-term like fixing our broken immigration system, investing in infrastructure and raising the minimum wage; Republicans continue to fight progress every step along the way. Instead of using their influence to obstruct growth, sue the President and continually raise the specter of shutting down the government, Republicans should join with Democrats to help ensure that every working American has the ability to support his or her family.”
