STATEMENT ON JULY JOBS REPORT FROM BUILDING BACK TOGETHER EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR DANIELLE MELFI
“This morning, new economic data was released showing that the economy gained nearly one million jobs in July, the fastest monthly job growth in almost a year. Since President Biden took office, over 4 million jobs have been created — more jobs in the first six months of any American presidency in history. This record growth has been spurred on by President Biden’s American Rescue Plan, which delivered much-needed relief to our families, small businesses, and communities.
“Under President Biden’s leadership, the economy is headed in the right direction. The Biden-Harris agenda is already building our economy back better than before, but there is more work to be done to create an economy that works for everyone. We need President Biden’s historic Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal, along with his Build Back Better agenda, so that we can make the once-in-a-generation investment that will create millions more good-paying jobs, cut taxes for working families, and lower costs for everyday Americans while rewarding work, not wealth.”
