WASHINGTON, D.C. — Invest In America’s spokesperson Maddy McDaniel issued the following statement responding to the slight rise in jobless claims after months of decreasing unemployment thanks to the American Rescue Plan:
“Thanks to the public investments in President Biden’s American Rescue Plan, jobless claims have been steadily decreasing for months. But today’s slight rise is a reminder that we’re not out of the woods yet, and the country has much further to go on the road to economic recovery.
“We need to continue to invest in our industries, manufacturing, caregivers, and our middle class with the full American Jobs and Families Plans. Millions of Americans are counting on these public investments to get back on their feet and back to work. We can’t afford to waste any more time.”
