Alexander on September Unemployment Report

Posted on October 7, 2011

KNOXVILLE – U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today released the following statement on the Labor Department’s September jobs report, which showed that unemployment in the U.S. remains at 9.1 percent:

“Millions of Americans are hurting in this economy and need work now, and Congress can make it easier for them to find good private-sector jobs by passing trade agreements to allow American businesses to sell more overseas, reforming our tax and regulatory systems to free up American businesses to hire, and working on entitlement reform to lower our job-killing debt.”
