A recently released report concludes that the U.S. economy would need to add 5.7 million jobs simply to reach pre-recession employment levels. When taking into account population growth and natural changes in the labor market, the United States remains far short of pre-recession employment levels.
At the current rate, the United States would reach pre-recession levels by June of 2018.
Frank Guinta released the following statement:
“Congresswoman Shea-Porter continues to grasp at any sign of economic life, but the simple fact remains that Obamanomics has failed. The stunning refusal to replace ObamaCare with reforms that work, remove the barriers to small business growth, and limit Washington spending is crushing our economy. Only when Washington removes itself from the equation, and places trust in you will our economy recover. As we move forward with our Middle-Class Economic Recovery Tour we will continue to offer solutions to put Granite Staters back to work."
