One Country Statement on February 2024 Jobs Report

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

“The labor market continued to show its strength in February. With this latest addition of 275,000 jobs, a record 15 million jobs have been created under President Biden’s administration. Today, on International Women’s Day, we’re celebrating the increase in women-owned businesses across the nation. But in order for women to open small businesses, create jobs, and bolster their local economies, they need policies that are pro-worker and pro-family.

“Congress must past long-overdue 2024 funding bills to keep the government running and women and children fed. Republicans prioritizing pushing partisan talking points over commonsense policies have sown uncertainty for months and delayed action on critical legislation. Action is what Americans in rural regions across the country need: from funding the Affordable Connectivity Program to ensure they can remain connected to internet services, to delivering a Farm Bill that addresses the challenges modern agriculture faces, to expanding the child tax credit and lifting children out of poverty.

“In last night’s State of the Union address, President Biden said that there’s nothing beyond our capacity when we work together. OCP calls on members of Congress to work together and deliver the tools hardworking Americans need to build a successful future for their families.”
