Jeb Bush: Americans ‘Need to Work Longer Hours’

In a interview with Manchester, NH’s The Union Leader, former Gov. Jeb Bush (R-FL), a 2016 candidate for the Republican presidential nomination, said in order to achieve the 4 percent growth in the economy he is touting, “People should work longer hours.”

Bush said, “My aspiration for the country and I believe we can achieve it, is 4 percent growth as far as the eye can see. Which means we have to be a lot more productive, workforce participation has to rise from its all-time modern lows. It means that people need to work longer hours and, through their productivity, gain more income for their families.”
