WASHINGTON—Upon release of the Bureau of Labor Statistics monthly jobs report, House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) issued the following statement:

“Unemployment has just hit its lowest point in nearly 50 years. It has been Republicans’ focus to help create an economic environment full of opportunities through pro-growth policies like tax reform—and now, we’re seeing more jobs available than people without one. This is yet another encouraging sign for those seeking a job today in America.”

NOTE: Speaker Ryan will be giving a speech Monday, October 8 at the National Press Club at 4 p.m. ET. He will highlight the positive results delivered by the Republican agenda during this Congress.
