"While it's welcome news that more people found work last month, millions still remain out of work, and middle-class families across the country, including my home state of Ohio, are struggling to get by on wages that haven't kept pace with rising costs," Boehner was quoted as saying in the statement published on his website.
The US Department of Labor on Friday published a report in which it said a total of 321,000 people found employment in the month of November. However, it said the unemployment rate had not recorded a change since October and continues to stand at 5.8 percent.
"The president's response has been more of the same: the same massive regulations, the same rising premiums, and the same uncertainty for manufacturers and small businesses," Boehner continued.
The report by the US Department of Labor shows that nonagricultural and private wage and salary workers compose the largest group of unemployed people in the United States.
