This morning Secretary of State Mike Fitzgerald and State Senator Jack Hatch (Des Moines) highlighted how the 23rd straight month of private sector job creation shows our economy is on the right track, and how critical it is for us to continue moving forward on this foundation.
The Labor Department today announced that the economy added 243,000 jobs in January. This data, and job growth over the past months, shows an economy that is growing and much stronger than when President Obama took office and the nation was losing 700,000 jobs each month.
America's businesses have now added jobs for 23 straight months. In that time, the private sector has added more than 3.7 million jobs.
