WASHINGTON D.C. — American Energy Alliance President Thomas Pyle released the following statement concerning today’s jobs report by the Bureau of Labor Statistics:

“Today’s employment report underscores the need for new, pro-growth policies for the energy and manufacturing sectors.  Mining lost 9,000 jobs in October, and this vital industry has shed 17,000 jobs since May. Manufacturing jobs were flat again this month, and the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that this sector has shown little change since April. Average earnings fell again, yet energy prices continue to climb. The American people have endured more than four years of economic hardship, yet Washington regulators have continued their assault on affordable energy and the jobs that developing our domestic resources could provide, particularly on federal lands. We cannot experience lasting economic recovery or create the jobs that will drive our energy future with the status quo.”
