Neal Statement on January 2024 Jobs Report

Today, Ways and Means Committee Ranking Member Richard E. Neal (D-MA) released the following statement on the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) January 2024 jobs report:

“Our economy continues to blow by expectations and propel us towards what naysayers claimed was impossible: an inclusive, sustainable recovery that didn’t sacrifice paychecks for growth. President Biden has overseen record job gains and unlocked historic investment in every corner of the country. What we’ve known all along is becoming clear to the nation: Democrats’ legislative achievements will be the most consequential in modern history.

“Against all odds, Ways and Means Democrats are legislating from the minority and giving working families much-needed breathing room. This week, thanks to our insistence, the House advanced legislation to cut taxes for millions of working families and support our record economic growth. The American people can count on Democrats to get things done and we’ll continue to build on the historic progress we’ve made until our vision of an economy that works for all is fully realized.”
