White House -- January 27, 2022 Briefing Room Statements and Releases
Today, Americans are finding better jobs with better pay and better benefits. Layoffs are near record lows.
Companies are investing in new manufacturing lines and factories here in the United States, with recent announcements of Intel in Ohio and GM in Michigan. We’re making the future in America again.
And, new small business applications have increased by more than 30% since 2019. Americans are dreaming again – believing in themselves and America.
We are finally building an American economy for the 21st Century, and I urge Congress to continue this momentum by passing legislation to make America more competitive, bolster our supply chains, strengthen our manufacturing and innovation, invest in our families and clean energy, and lower kitchen table costs.
