Retail employment down 6,700 in February
from National Retail Federation
The National Retail Federation recently issued the following statements from NRF President and CEO Matthew Shay and Chief Economist Jack Kleinhenz in response to the February jobs report. "While there are signs of modest momentum in the economy, now is not the time to play partisan politics with the recovery by forcing federal mandates on retailers and small business owners like an increase in the minimum wage," said Matthew Shay. "Such policy decisions could hamper economic growth and actually drive up the unemployment rate."
