AFP Statement on March Job Numbers

Apr 2, 2021 by AFP

Arlington, Va. – Americans for Prosperity Senior Policy Analyst Austen Bannan issued the following statement on today’s strong jobs report showing the economy added 916,000 jobs – the strongest showing since last August – and unemployment fell to 6 percent:

“Americans are getting back to work and the economy is getting back on it’s feet. The last thing we should do is enact massive tax increases that would crush small businesses, lower worker wages, and ultimately reverse any progress we make on recovery to pay for economically damaging policies found in the so-called infrastructure bill. The better way to recover stronger is to remove needless government barriers getting in the way our ability to get back to work quickly and safely.”
