Washington, D.C. – Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued the following statement on the November jobs report:

“The alarming November jobs report is another urgent warning that real relief is needed to crush the virus, stop the mass layoffs of essential workers and put money in the pockets of the American people.  

“We have an opportunity to do that by building on the bipartisan framework unveiled on Tuesday by Senators, which was developed with the support of House Members on both sides of the aisle.  With the vaccine imminent and just weeks until the inauguration of a new president committed to crushing the virus and growing the economy, Republicans and Democrats must immediately come together on a true, bipartisan effort to meaningfully address the health and economic crisis gripping our country.

“As we look toward the future, House Democrats are preparing to work with the Biden-Harris Administration to take strong action to grow our economy and strengthen our communities.  Together, we will Build Back Better For The People.”
