Commending Jim Inhofe June 24, 2014
Jeff Sessions, R-AL
"Since 1978, NERO has recognized in a nonpartisan manner outstanding achievements in the energy field, particularly in the areas of public awareness regarding energy development and use. In addition to working for 30 years in the private sector, Jim is the past mayor of Tulsa, U.S. Congressman, and has represented the State of Oklahoma in the U.S. Senate since 1994."
Minimum Wage Fairness Act—Motion To Proceed—Continued April 29, 2014
Ted Cruz, R-TX
"Today, we have the lowest labor force participation since 1978. The official unemployment rate is 6.7 percent, but that doesn’t capture the millions who are underemployed. When we include them, the number rises to 12.7 percent. The rates of poverty in the United States are right now at historic highs—15 percent. As CNN recently noted, this is “the first time the poverty rate has remained at or above 15 percent 3 years running since 1965.”"
Protecting Volunteer Firefighters And Emergency Responders Act Of 2014 April 1, 2014
Jeff Sessions, R-AL
"Only about 63 percent of Americans over the age of 16 participate in the job market, meaning they either have a job or are just looking for one. That is nearly the lowest level since 1978, driven partly by baby boomers retiring but also by workers who had simply given up hope after long and fruitless job searches."
