Press Release

San Francisco – Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued this statement on the June jobs report:

“Today’s jobs numbers send a resounding message: thanks to President Biden and Congressional Democrats, America is roaring back.  By putting vaccines in arms and money in workers’ pockets, Democrats are leading an historic economic recovery, with more jobs and higher wages across the board.

“Democrats’ economic recovery is working, with the CBO also just doubling their economic growth predictions for the year.  We must continue our progress and consolidate these gains so that we can truly Build Back Better, with opportunity and prosperity for all.  Now that the House has passed our infrastructure package which follows the vision of the Jobs Plan, Congressional Democrats are working together on infrastructure and reconciliation bills that meet the needs of the American people.  This must include the American Families Plan to get parents earning and children learning, with popular, effective and bipartisan provisions that include child care, paid leave, an expanded Child Tax Credit and strengthening the care economy.

“Democrats are committed to Building Back Better For The People.”
