Groundwork Previews November Jobs Report

December 1, 2021

While economists are predicting another strong jobs report this Friday, Dr. Rakeen Mabud, chief economist at Groundwork, warned against efforts to pull the brakes on deeply-needed investments before our economy has fully recovered for all workers and families:

“Amid fears of a pandemic resurgence and rising prices, one thing is clear: our leaders must continue to prioritize economic security for all, especially for the Black and brown communities who continue to bear the brunt of this crisis. Passing the Build Back Better Act is an important step in supporting quality jobs and a stronger labor force, and disrupting the deeply unequal, precarious status quo that got us here in the first place.”
