Washington, D.C.—Today, Congresswoman Deborah Ross (NC-02) released the following statement after the U.S. Department of Labor reported the U.S. economy added 531,000 jobs in October and unemployment fell to 4.6%.

“The October jobs report is further proof that President Biden’s economic plan is working. The decisive action Democrats took to pass the American Rescue Plan and get Americans vaccinated helped our economy rebound at a rate unsurpassed in recent history,” said Congresswoman Ross. “We must now build on this success by passing the Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill and the Build Back Better Act—two pieces of transformational legislation that will spur economic growth, rebuild our crumbling infrastructure, invest in working families, and create jobs in Wake County – jobs that cannot be outsourced.”
