Nov 2, 2018
Press Release

MIAMI ­­– Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (FL-25) issued the following statement regarding the October 2018 jobs report. The U.S. Department of Labor reported the unemployment rate in October was 3.7 percent and the economy added 250,000 jobs.

“Our economy continues to grow, giving people across the United States more opportunities to become self-sufficient. Wages and salaries are at their highest in a decade. Unemployment claims are at a 45-year low. Thousands of jobs are added to our job market each month. Not only do these numbers indicate a strong economy, but more importantly, they show that Americans are finding employment and taking home bigger paychecks to provide for themselves and their families. Nearly a year after its passage, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act continues to create jobs across the United States, and I remain committed to supporting policies that bolster the economy and provide solutions for working class Americans.”
