Congressman Joe Wilson (SC-02) released the following statement in response to the November jobs report released by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics:

 “For the past two and a half years, our nation’s unemployment rate has consistently remained at or above eight percent.  This is unacceptable.  It is absolutely necessary for Congress and the President to work together to promote job creation and ways to remove barriers to allow for private-sector growth. House Republicans have remained focused on job creation, making the issue our number one priority. Since January, the House has passed over 25 jobs bills with bi-partisan support, 20 of which are still stalled in the Senate.  I urge Senate Democrats to take action on these bills and give American families what they deserve: A Job.”
