AFSCME Pres. Lee Saunders Statement on February Jobs Report: “Stagnant Wages Continue to Hold Middle-Class Families Back”


AFSCME Pres. Lee Saunders issued the following statement in response to the February jobs report released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics:

“Today’s jobs report is an encouraging sign of our nation’s economic recovery. But it also highlights the sad fact that stagnant wages continue to hold middle-class families back. The best way for workers to advocate for fair wages, and more opportunity is by building a strong labor movement. We must ensure that America’s workers see the gains of a growing economy – not just corporations and billionaires.”
