Pelosi Statement on November Jobs Report
Washington, D.C. – Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued this statement on the November jobs report:
“The November jobs report is further evidence that the Biden Build Back Better agenda is getting Americans back to work. Under President Biden and Congressional Democrats’ leadership, unemployment is down a full two percentage points since the President took office and is at the lowest level since before the pandemic, job growth is years ahead of projections with a record six million jobs created this year and paychecks are surging and taxes are being cut with the Biden Child Tax Credit.
“Democrats are using every tool at our disposal to build on this progress to create jobs and lower families’ costs, including through the Build Back Better Act, which is the biggest cost cutting bill for the middle class in modern history, providing immediate relief for families. The Build Back Better Act will be transformational for families: cutting child care costs in half for most families and securing universal free pre-K, providing paid family and medical leave, improving home health care, slashing the price of prescription drugs and health care and fighting the climate crisis for our children.
“Congressional Democrats and President Biden will Build Back Better For The People – with more jobs, cut taxes and lower costs for all!"
