Alliance for American Manufacturing Statement on Latest Monthly Jobs Report
The latest monthly U.S. jobs report has been issued. Said Scott Paul, Executive Director, Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM):
"The silver lining in this otherwise odd jobs report is manufacturing, which gained 49,000 jobs in January. That is a strong number, coming off the worst decade in history for this crucial sector of the economy. But we will not sustain these gains unless our lawmakers focus on policies to reduce our trade deficit, invest in infrastructure and clean energy manufacturing, and develop a long-term strategy to strengthen America's productive capacity."
