Emken for U.S. Senate Statement on Dismal August Jobs Report
(ORANGE COUNTY, CA) – Elizabeth Emken, Republican challenger for U.S. Senate in California, today released the following statement regarding this morning’s employment report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics:
“The latest unemployment figures are simply unacceptable, especially when growing numbers of people have simply given up trying to get a job, business owners are hesitant to commit to expanding and hiring, and our economy has become so sluggish that even a whisper of an economic turnaround gets a standing ovation.
“Dianne Feinstein and the Democrats spent this past week in Charlotte pointing their fingers and stomping their feet, but much like their record over the past six years, showed no evidence that they have a reasonable, specific plan for getting America back on its feet. Amazingly, Feinstein sounded like she’s more concerned about who has guns than who has jobs.
“We need to break free from the failed policies of the Democratic leadership that has brought our economy to a standstill. I’m ready to work with anyone who is willing to remove the obstacles that have slowed job growth. This is what California taxpayers want from their investment and demand from their leadership.”
