Fifth District Congresswoman Susan Brooks is worried that the nation’s unemployment figures are misleading and don’t accurately portray the effects of joblessness on America.
Brooks says her main priority on Capitol Hill and that of her fellow lawmakers must be developing jobs for Americans.
Brooks says too many jobless people have simply given up looking for a decent job, and those numbers don’t count in the nation’s unemployment figures. She says another major worry is that many Americans don’t have the skills they need to get a good job today.
