Today, Kentucky Representative John Yarmuth, Chairman of the House Budget Committee, released the following statement after the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reported that nonfarm payroll employment increased by 263,000 in November and the unemployment rate held steady at 3.7 percent:  

"Today's jobs report shows 23 months of consecutive job growth and more than 10.5 million jobs created since President Biden took office. With Democrats at the helm, this Congressional session was historically productive -- enabling us to come back from the pandemic stronger than ever and make extraordinary progress building an economy that works for working families, not just those at the top," said Chairman Yarmuth.

"From the American Rescue Plan that enabled our record-breaking recovery from COVID and the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law that revitalized our infrastructure, to the CHIPS bill that made major investments in America's economic competitiveness and the Inflation Reduction Act that lowered costs for working families: Democrats have shown that when we're in charge, Congress gets things done -- and every community in America benefits."
