Reid: To Keep Our Economy Moving In The Right Direction We Need To Work Together To Protect Middle Class Families

Washington, D.C. — Nevada Senator Harry Reid released the following statement regarding the April employment figures released this morning showing that our economy added 244,000 jobs last month:

“Today’s news that the economy added 244,000 jobs, including the most private sector jobs in over five years, is more evidence that our economy is headed back on the right track.”

“But many people in Nevada and across America are still facing tough times. That’s why Democrats remain focused on putting Americans back to work. Republicans on the other hand are wasting time on partisan grandstanding, and this week blocked a bill to help small businesses innovate, grow and hire. This is not the time to be distracted by these political games – it’s time they join us in putting middle class families first and help us pass the common-sense measures that will help out economy continue to grow.”
