Reid on September jobless rate: ‘Far too high’

Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., reacting to this morning’s report that Nevada’s jobless rate remained at 13.4 percent in September while it improved in Las Vegas, said this is a statement:

"The unemployment rate remains far too high in Nevada.  We must continue our efforts to create good-paying jobs that can’t be shipped overseas, such as the 300 jobs APAC yesterday announced it will bring to our state."

"Last night, Republicans continued their obstruction by blocking a jobs bill that would support thousands of teachers and first responders in Nevada. These tactics for political gain are not going to help Nevada’s economy recover, and I call on my Republican colleagues to put partisan politics aside to support President Obama’s jobs agenda that will put Nevadans back to work."
