Pelosi on jobs report: ‘GOP disrespects workers, dishonors our values, damages our economy’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi responded to a January employment report that showed “nonfarm payroll employment increased by 304,000” during the month by issuing a statement attacking congressional Republicans for embracing an attitude that “disrespects workers”

Pelosi also lamented the situation of federal workers, who, even if they were furloughed during the partial shutdown that ended on January 25 were paid for the time they did not work.

Also, the jobs report showed that the federal government added 1,000 workers during the month.
