DFL Party Statement on Latest Jobs and Unemployment Numbers


After the U.S. Department of Labor released the latest jobs and unemployment numbers, DFL Party Chairman Ken Martin issued the following statement:

“The latest jobs numbers show job growth has slowed. Thousands of Minnesotans are still out of work as our country faces simultaneous public health and economic crises. It didn’t have to be this bad. President Trump admitted to downplaying the virus for his own political gain, all while hard working people pay the price. We need leaders in the White House who will lift up workers, provide our communities with the relief we so desperately need, and build back an economy that’s stronger, and more equitable, than ever before.”
