Washington, D.C. – Nevada Senator Harry Reid made the following statement on Nevada's unemployment rate in September:
“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.”
