PRESS CALL TODAY, 10:30 a.m. ET: Groundwork’s Chief Economist Dr. Rakeen Mabud, Other Experts To Weigh in on April Jobs Report

May 6, 2022

Today at 10:30 a.m. ET, Groundwork’s Chief Economist Dr. Rakeen Mabud will join the Washington Center for Equitable Growth’s Kate Bahn and the Roosevelt Institute’s Lauren Melodia for a Jobs Day Press Call. Leading economists will share their real-time analysis of the April Jobs Report and what it means for workers, families, and small businesses. 

“The trajectory of the labor market recovery is a testament to the people-centered investments policymakers made during the pandemic,”  said Dr. Mabud. “However, the Black unemployment rate remains at nearly double the white unemployment rate, an unacceptable inequity that has persisted for too long. We must not get complacent and settle for the pre-pandemic labor market that failed to support far too many if we are to ensure our economy truly works for all.”
