Black Caucus Comments On December Unemployment Numbers

 

Washington D.C. – Congresswoman Barbara Lee (D-CA), Chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus, released the following statement on the December economic report.

 

 

“While the Administration and Congress have been successful in stabilizing the economy through a much needed stimulus package, keeping the financial services industry from collapsing and reducing the rate of job loss, the unemployment numbers are a sobering reminder that millions of American workers and their families are still in need of jobs.

 

“We know that the economic security of all Americans is fragile, yet communities of color have been disproportionally hit hardest by this recession. As the ‘Conscience of the Congress’, the CBC is morally obligated to address these systemic inequalities.”

 

“As we begin the second session of the 111th Congress it is imperative that job creation be a top priority. Congress must continue to work with President Obama to put the American people back to work by providing steady, good-paying jobs. It is essential that as we invest in education, job training and green jobs, no American is left behind.”
