DNC Chair Jaime Harrison released the following statement after the U.S. Department of Labor announced that nonfarm payrolls increased by 916,000 in March:
“This blowout jobs report is the latest encouraging sign that President Biden’s leadership is getting our country back on track, no thanks to congressional Republicans who voted against the American Rescue Plan, which is getting more Americans vaccinated every day, putting money in pockets, and delivering relief for small businesses.
“Now, small businesses across the country are hiring again, and Americans are starting to get back to work. And while we still have work to do to fully recover from the devastation the coronavirus caused, President Biden has shown he knows what is needed to get the job done.
“It’s now time to continue building on these gains with the American Jobs Plan, which will spur growth across the economy, and create more good-paying, union jobs for American workers.”
