Republican Leader of the Education and Labor Committee Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-NC) gave the following statement after reports that only 235,000 jobs were added in August, falling nearly 500,000 short of expectations:

“Failing to meet expectations is the new normal in Biden’s America. Despite widespread vaccine availability, the August jobs report was the worst in Biden’s presidential history, a signal that he is either unwilling or incapable of leading our nation through economic recovery. This is what happens when you reward people for staying at home and throw gasoline on an inflation fire with socialist spending packages. If Congressional Democrats and the Biden administration really want to help struggling Americans, they will get out of job creators’ way and suspend with Pelosi’s $3.5 trillion spending spree which will double down on the worst of today’s jobs report.”
