Speaking on Friday’s MSNBC “Jose Díaz-Balart Reports” show, Representative Raul Ruiz (D-CA) said the November Jobs Report “is phenomenal news for all of us” and that “all our communities will just get back to work and the economy will continue to grow.
Host Jose-Diaz Balart asked, “I want to start by hearing your reaction to the November jobs report. It showed a sharp drop in unemployment within the African American community, a sharp drop in unemployment within our community, the Latino community. 210,000 jobs have been created. What is your answer ? “
Ruiz replied, “My response is that this is phenomenal news for all of us, for all of America, regardless of our ethnicity. Because all of our communities are just going to get back to work and the economy will continue to grow. And that’s before the incredible and historic bipartisan infrastructure bill that was signed by the president not too long ago, where we’re going to have even more construction jobs, around 1.5 million a year for the next two years, just with this infrastructure bill that we passed.
