Jobs Day Preview: Worker Power

November 4, 2021

Washington, D.C. — In anticipation of tomorrow’s Jobs Report, Mike Mitchell, director of policy and research at Groundwork Collaborative, shared the following statement:

“The rise of labor strikes across the country is truly inspiring, as workers use their collective voices to set wages and working conditions on their own terms. But as tomorrow’s job numbers will demonstrate, this historic leverage for workers must be paired with millions of additional good jobs and sustained investments in climate resilience, child care, and other critical benefits to ensure a full economic recovery in which every worker can thrive.”
