WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Senator Rick Scott released the following statement calling out President Joe Biden’s disgusting attempts to gaslight the American people and mislead about yet another jobs report. October’s jobs report shows huge losses in full-time jobs, while the number of part-time jobs continues to grow.
Senator Rick Scott said, “Joe Biden loves to tout jobs numbers, but he isn’t telling the full truth. Sadly, as American families suffer month after month, the mainstream media continues to give Biden a pass and ignore the truth: America’s jobs market is wildly unstable. In October, American businesses cut 433,000 full-time jobs. This is a MAJOR red flag. While Biden touts a ‘great’ economy and pushes out nice-sounding headlines, the numbers show otherwise: a shrinking workforce, a growing unemployment rate, and MASSIVE DECREASES in full time jobs. For families, this is devastating – they are losing the stability of good, full-time jobs at the time they need it most.
“Growing up, my family was poor, we lived in public housing and we had to watch every penny we spent. My mom would take on odd jobs and multiple jobs to pay the bills and it meant she spent less time with us at home. That’s EXACTLY what’s happening all across the country right now because of Joe Biden’s job-killing economic agenda. I want this country to succeed; I want our economy to grow and for families to have the opportunities promised by the American dream. That’s why, when Republicans are in charge, we’ll end this reckless, inflation-fueling spending, and fix this broken economy to protect the great opportunity for every American to live their dreams in our great country.”
