DNC Chair Jaime Harrison released the following statement in response to the May jobs report, which shows that a more than 2 million jobs have been created under President Biden:
“Today’s job report shows that President Biden and Democrats have made historic progress for American families with record job growth and record wages. Across the country, we’re seeing COVID cases decline to the lowest level since the pandemic began, over 60% of Americans have at least one vaccine dose, and unemployment is at the lowest level since before the pandemic. President Biden’s economic plan is working, and his American Rescue Plan has lifted millions of families at a critical time.
“As each day passes, it becomes more clear that congressional Republicans made a callous decision to turn their backs on struggling families and businesses when they needed help the most. Thanks to President Biden, we are experiencing a record economic recovery as people return to work, businesses reopen, and summer kicks off.”
