Concerned Women for America Comments on September Unemployment Rate of 7.8%
Washington, DC - Concerned Women for America CEO and President Penny Nance issued the following statement in response to the September jobs report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics showing the unemployment rate at 7.8%:
"Families of this country are struggling and with an unemployment rate of 7.8%, we need to make job creation a priority. People are rightly concerned about the lack of jobs and low take home pay. With just more than 30 days until the most important election in our lifetime, we need leadership in Washington that will focus on creating jobs for Americans, not just renewing their current job contract.
"We talk to mothers across the country and they say the high unemployment rate, along with the growing debt, is a moral issue. As a nation, we have a moral responsibility to provide for today and not pass on our financial burden to future generations."
