February 5, 2021

WASHINGTON – Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah), Member of the Joint Economic Committee, today released the following statement in response to the U.S. Labor Department January 2021 jobs report:

“The first month of the new year brings news of 49,000 jobs added in January. With more Americans finding work and getting vaccinated, we are now closer than ever before to moving beyond the pandemic. As more of the economy fully reopens, America is poised to gain millions of jobs back this year that were lost to COVID-19, and indications suggest we are at the beginning of a streak of good news.”
