Contact: Speaker’s Press Office,
Washington, D.C. – Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued the following statement on the December jobs report:
“The dreadful December jobs report is more evidence of the Trump Administration’s failure to confront the staggering health and economic crises brought about by the accelerating coronavirus pandemic.
“The American people have now delivered a transformational, unified Democratic government committed to taking bold action to save lives and livelihoods from the coronavirus crisis. In addition to securing further funding to crush the virus and put more money into Americans’ pockets, we will finally pass the robust relief that our state and local heroes – our health care workers; first responders; transit, sanitation and food workers; and our teachers, our teachers, our teachers – need to keep our communities healthy, safe and working.
“In two weeks, our nation will inaugurate a new Democratic president and vice president, and we will immediately get to work For The People, advancing the values of equality, opportunity and justice for all. United by our shared vision, Democrats will Build Back Better in a way that emphasizes creating good-paying jobs and fair, equal and just economic growth for every American.”
