Groundwork’s Mike Mitchell Previews August Jobs Numbers

September 1, 2022 Groundwork Collaborative

Ahead of tomorrow’s August Jobs Report, Groundwork’s Director of Policy and Research Mike Mitchell released the following statement:

“Our economy has experienced one of the fastest labor market recoveries ever – but all these historic gains could disappear if the Fed decides to ‘save’ the economy by throwing millions out of work. Bringing ‘pain to households and businesses’ doesn’t help build a healthy economy. 

“Good-paying, quality jobs are at the base of an economy at its best – aggressive interest rate hikes erode that foundation.”
