National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) President and CEO Jay Timmons issued the following statement on the February jobs numbers issued by the Bureau of Labor Statistics today:
“Today’s news is another strong indicator of the ‘Trump bump’ of positive economic activity. Across America, manufacturers’ confidence is high, and business optimism continues to soar, because of President Donald Trump’s laser focus on policies that will accelerate a jobs surge in America. To keep the momentum going, manufacturers have the solutions: regulatory reform, infrastructure investment and bold tax reform. We are ready to work with the president, Congress and anyone who cares about the manufacturing economy to get those priorities across the finish line and raise the standard of living of all Americans.”
