One Country Statement on December 2023 Jobs Report

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, One Country Project issued the following statement after the release of the December jobs report:

“In 2023, our economy weathered pressure from political turmoil and uncertainty, and still saw consistent job growth every month, with December rounding out the year with 216,000 more jobs. 2.7 million jobs were added to the U.S. economy last year, which is a testament to the Biden administration’s efforts to build resilient and sustainable growth. The new year looks optimistic for American workers, as hourly earnings have continued to rise and inflation has continued to cool, sparking hope in farmers — the majority of whom believe it will further subside in 2024.

“While 2023 saw stabilization for the economy, it saw disarray in Congress and a startling lack of productivity. Congress must do better in 2024. This year, it must pass FY 2024 appropriations bills to keep the government running and pass a Farm Bill that enables rural America to thrive for years to come by securing our farming foundation, providing the resources Americans need to continue living and working in rural regions, and opening opportunities for rural economic growth. This election year, OCP remains focused on ensuring that rural residents’ priorities remain in focus. Politics cannot impede progress for hardworking Americans who need tangible support to access health care, receive a quality education, and put food on the table for their families.”
