June 5, 2020, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement on the latest jobs numbers:
“Today's employment numbers confirm that we've turned the corner on the Chinese originated virus economic disaster. More people are working, more people are in the workforce, and America is reopening. This is great news for the millions of Americans who fear that they may not have a job to return to. It is also a confirmation of President Trump's emphasis on supporting small and mid-sized businesses that were either shut down or damaged as a result of the Covid-19 response. In two weeks, we will see the impact on a state-by-state basis of reopening economies and we'll be able to compare Covid-19 case numbers over the last month and a half with state reopening data and employment results. It is easy to predict that those states which have been more aggressive in reopening while maintaining basic safety standards will show maximum growth with very little disease impact.
“It is time to www.ReopenAmericaNow.org, and truly kick our economy back into high gear.”
