Press Release

MIAMI ­­– Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (FL-25) issued the following statement regarding the September 2018 jobs report. The U.S. Department of Labor reported the unemployment rate in September was 3.7 percent and the economy added 134,000 jobs.

“The September jobs report reflects the positive impact of tax reform. Our economy continues to strengthen, creating more jobs that offer individuals the opportunity to become self-reliant and free from dependency. Last week’s passage of Tax 2.0 will permanently lock in these tax cuts that have helped working class families and small business owners alike. I am proud of the results we have achieved to ensure that families are Better Off Now, and I will continue to provide real solutions for Floridians in the 25th District.”
