John Kasich on Jobs

Kasich says wage growth is too weak and the economy needs to be lifted.

MIKA BRZEZINSKI: Joining us now from Seabrook New Hampshire Republican Presidential Candidate Governor John Kasich of Ohio. Good morning, great to have you on the show.

JOE SCARBOROUGH: Governor great to have you with us. We just did the jobs report. Democrats can say “hey unemployment is below 5%, wages are going up, job participation rates going up why change course?” What would you say to that?

JOHN KASICH: Well Joe you know it’s the weakest recovery since World War Two, coming out of the recession. I’d like to see that labor participation rate but I’m thrilled to see that anything is happening with wages because they’ve been stagnant for so long. But you can’t have this kind of anemic growth and get to where we want to get to and the problem is everything is a cycle. So we’ve got to lift the economy because at some point it starts to trend down again. And I think the reason why we’ve seen some of the bad numbers in addition to what she said is worldwide we’ve seen a suppression of activity and that’s why it’s even more important for the US economy to grow stronger and help pull some of the rest of the world out of the ditch. So it’s good that the wages are up but frankly the recovery is too weak. And it doesn’t matter whether you’re republican or democrat, it’s just too weak.
