INDIANAPOLIS – Drew Anderson, communications director for the Indiana Democratic Party, released the following statement in light of today’s state jobs report for the month of May.
“Another month, another time where Hoosiers hear about job creation but don’t see the reality in their pocketbooks. The fact is, Hoosiers are well aware that Indiana’s economy is lagging behind the national average while their income strength has dropped to 38th in the nation. Mike Pence is essentially telling Hoosiers ‘a job is a job’ and they need to accept the positions that make them work more for less. Workers are fed up and tired, need a raise, and cannot wait to vote out Mike Pence and his out-of-touch ideology this November.”
