DPG Statement on September State Jobs Report

October 20, 2020

Atlanta — After the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics released its latest state employment and unemployment report numbers, DPG Executive Director Scott Hogan issued the following statement:

““Over half a year into this pandemic, Donald Trump’s complete failure to contain the coronavirus has left us with 215,000 American lost and a crashing economy. Georgia’s unemployment rate is going up yet again, as hundreds of thousands of Georgians have lost their jobs, benefits, and health insurance in the middle of a global pandemic. We know it didn’t have to be this bad, and we know Donald Trump is squarely at fault for making this worse. We have two weeks to elect Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, whose proven leadership will help us build back better and finally truly recover from this crisis.”
