Press Release

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

“Today’s job report is further evidence of the need to Build Back Better for our economy.  As the delta variant continues, decisive action is needed to ensure that the economic gains forged under President Biden – including four million jobs created – are sustained and shared by all.

“The Build Back Better Act is what is needed to meet families’ needs, both during the pandemic and for years to come.  We must Build Back Better so more women and parents can participate fully in our economy – including through historic investments in child care, paid family leave, free universal pre-school and home-based care.  The Build Back Better Act will be transformational for families: cutting costs for child care, health care and prescription drugs, education and other priorities for families, delivering one of the largest tax cuts ever for workers and families and creating millions of good-paying jobs.

“Congressional Democrats and President Biden will Build Back Better – with more jobs, cut taxes and lower costs for all.”
