NV Dems Statement on Latest Jobs Report

Nevada State Democratic Party Chair William McCurdy II released the following statement in response to today’s Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) state-specific jobs report, which revealed that nearly 13% of workers remain unemployed in Nevada:

“Today’s jobs numbers show that two weeks before Election Day, Nevada is facing one of the highest unemployment rates in the nation due to Trump’s disastrous coronavirus response. Of course, Nevadans already know how bad things are because they’ve been living with the consequences of Trump’s failures since the beginning. Nevada communities have been reeling from this crisis for months because Trump would rather make excuses and trash public health experts than actually implement an effective, national coronavirus response. Trump has proven himself incapable of meeting this moment and as a result, Americans are dying unnecessarily, working families are wondering how they will pay their bills, and hundreds of thousands of Nevadans are out of work. To move past this crisis, recover our economy, and build it back better than before, we need Joe Biden and Kamala Harris in the White House.”
