Here are some comments made on Friday about jobs.
President Barack Obama “This report is a sign that our economy is getting stronger by the day. … I want to emphasize that most of the jobs this month that we’re seeing in the statistics represent workers who have been hired to complete the 2010 census, so these are temporary jobs that are only going to last until the fall and that may be reflected in future jobs reports. But even if you put those temporary jobs aside, there’s no doubt that we saw another month of private-sector job growth.”
Economist Diana Furchtgott-Roth “This is a shocking jobs report, especially after the billions of dollars Congress has spent on different stimulus programs. … The job market clearly is not improving, and Congress needs to take a different tack, such as making the current tax rates permanent and cutting spending.”
Georgia Rep. Tom Price “The Obama administration seems to have plenty of jobs to offer to Democrat primary challengers. It’s too bad most of the 15 million unemployed Americans aren’t eligible. With the number of potential workers increasing every day, new job opportunities can’t come quickly enough. Unemployment has been well over 9% for an entire year now, and in April long-term unemployment reached its highest level in 60 years. Clearly, these problems are not going to be solved with handouts to political cronies or temporary Census jobs that will disappear again in a few months.” SOURCE
