Statement on Massachusetts’ August Unemployment Rate

Today I released the following statement today regarding Massachusetts’ August unemployment rate of 7.2%:

“The unemployment figures released today show a stagnating economic recovery and prove that we have a lot of work to do to create the jobs people need.  Rather than passing new taxes on the technology sector, we need to attack the costs that stand in the way of creating jobs, like unemployment insurance, health care, and energy.”
