(CNSNews.com) - House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) said today that the jobs report for March, which showed unemployment holding at 4.1 percent, indicates that “the wealthiest 1 percent continue to hoard the benefits of the U.S. economy.”

“Democrats will never stop fighting for the hard-working middle class families who are the backbone of our nation,” Pelosi said.

Here is Pelosi’s statement following the release of the March jobs report by the Bureau of Labor Statistics:

“March’s disappointing jobs report shows that corporations and the wealthiest 1 percent continue to hoard the benefits of the U.S. economy. Powerful special interests are reaping massive windfalls from the GOP tax scam, while workers are denied the raises and good-paying jobs they deserve.

“From the start, the White House and Republicans in Congress have put themselves and their rich donors first, and the American people last. Corporations are cheering their huge new tax breaks by enriching their executives and investors, while hard-working men and women see little help and rising health costs.

“Democrats are fighting to give the American people a better deal, with better jobs, better wages and a better future. We are committed to creating millions of new good-paying jobs and raising wages, lowering the soaring cost of living for families and giving every American the tools to succeed in the 21st Century economy. Democrats will never stop fighting for the hard-working middle class families who are the backbone of our nation.”
