According to the U.S. Labor Department, the unemployment rate fell to 8.6 percent in November, while 120,000 jobs were added.
The unemployment rate has not dropped below 9 percent since March 2009. Congressman Richard Hanna issued a statement today after November's report.
"It's welcome news to see the economy adding jobs, but certainly more needs to be done to put Americans back to work. The unemployment rate remains outrageously high, and too many of our neighbors are looking for work or unable to find full-time jobs. What we need is growth," says Hanna.
He says he
has introduced a bipartisan jobs bill called the AGREE Act. He is
working with U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, who introduced a similar legislation
in the Senate.
