U.S. Chamber on Disappointing September Jobs Report

Friday, October 8, 2021 - 9:30am

Washington, D.C. — U.S. Chamber Executive Vice President and Chief Policy Officer Neil Bradley issued the following statement today following the release of the September Jobs Report:

“As shocking as today’s employment figures are, even more troubling is the decline in the labor force. We are in the midst of a worker shortage crisis and the number of potential workers is shrinking. Multi-trillion tax and spend proposals in Washington will only make matters worse. It is time for Congress to set that aside and focus on helping Americans get back to work and helping employers fill open jobs.”
