Groundwork Previews September Jobs Report

October 6, 2021

Today, Groundwork’s Chief Economist released the following statement in advance of the U.S. Labor Department’s September Employment Report: 

“The stakes couldn’t be higher for workers and families ahead of Friday’s jobs report. With the Delta variant threatening an already fragile economic recovery and the Black unemployment rate at crisis levels, we can’t afford to squander this opportunity to create millions of good-paying jobs and invest in an inclusive recovery. 

“It’s time for Congress to close the deal on the long-overdue promised investments — in climate, housing, caregiving, and other critical policies — that families, workers, and communities around the country need to thrive.”  

Email to speak to Dr. Rakeen Mabud about what we can expect in the September jobs report and its impact on the infrastructure debate in Washington.
