Congressman Joe Wilson Applauds October Job Numbers

West Columbia, S.C. – Congressman Joe Wilson (R-SC) released the following statement praising the October job numbers:

Last month, the economy added 250,000 new jobs across the country. The wage growth increased to 3.1 percent over the past year, the highest rise in 10 years. The unemployment rate now sits at 3.7 percent- the lowest since 1969. The unemployment number would have been even lower, but 700,000 people reentered the job market. By creating jobs, lowering unemployment, and increasing wages, President Donald Trump is continuing his effective record of Promises Made and now Promises Kept, and I am grateful that he keeps his promises to create jobs. Although there is still more work to do, I am grateful for his consistent work to aid in positive job creation for American families.”
