BREAKING: March Jobs Report Shows 11 Straight Months of Job Gains and Pandemic-Era Low Unemployment Rate

North Carolina Democratic Party (NCDP) Chair Bobbie Richardson released the following statement on the March jobs report

“Today’s job report is yet another proof point that President Biden’s economic plan is working. Thanks to President Biden’s leadership, our country has seen a record eleven straight months of job gains above 400,000, a pandemic-era low unemployment rate, and nearly eight million jobs created since the president took office. This historic economic recovery is due to President Biden and Democrats’ American Rescue Plan, which every single Republican from North Carolina voted against. 

“Make no mistake – Democrats are delivering results and record job numbers while Republicans are actively rooting against our country’s economic growth. From VinFast opening its first auto manufacturing plant in Chatham County to Macy’s building its first automated fulfillment center in Rowan County, Governor Cooper has announced two major jobs announcements in one week alone. Meanwhile, just last night, nearly every House Republican from North Carolina voted against capping insulin costs and have been pushing an agenda to raise taxes on half of all Americans, make health care more expensive, gut pre-existing condition protections, and do nothing to lower prescription drug prices. From now until November, we’re holding Republicans accountable for their reckless agenda that would hurt hardworking North Carolina families and undermine economic recovery.”
