U.S. Representative Glen G.T. Thompson (PA -05) today released the following statement regarding the latest unemployment report showing that Pennsylvania’s jobless rate continues to improve under Governor Tom Corbett’s leadership.

The unemployment rate now stands at 6.2 percent, which is the lowest level since November 2008 and remains below the national rate of 6.7 percent.

The latest numbers come on the heels of another positive jobs report from earlier this month that put the jobless rate at 6.4 percent.

“Today’s job report shows that Pennsylvania’s economy continues to improve under Governor Tom Corbett’s leadership,” stated Thompson.

“With Pennsylvania’s unemployment rate below the national average once again, the President should look to our state for solutions that are growing jobs and helping our economy to rebound through a strong private sector.”
