STATEMENT: CAP’s Adam Hersh on the March Jobs Report

Washington, D.C.—Today, Adam Hersh, Economist at the Center for American Progress, had the following reaction to the announcement that the economy added 120,000 jobs in March:

Today’s jobs number shows the economy took another step in the right direction as the private sector added new jobs for the 25th consecutive month. This economic progress is threatened, however, by the Republican budget passed in the House of Representatives last week, which would undermine economic growth and weaken middle-class families while lavishing tax breaks on the wealthy.
