One Country Statement on April 2022 Jobs Report       

WASHINGTON, D.C.– Today, One Country Project founder Heidi Heitkamp issued the following statement after the release of the April jobs report 

“This month’s jobs report exceeded expectations, showing remarkable consistency since the Biden administration took office. The United States added 428,000 jobs in April, versus 380,000 job estimates.  

“It is reassuring to see U.S. hiring and hourly wage gains in April’s jobs report because we know there are external forces putting pressure on everyday Americans’ pocketbooks right now. It is a feat that American jobs are growing as strongly as they are today.  

“We are seeing the investments from the bipartisan infrastructure law and American Rescue Plan make an impact, but our economy will need more intentional investments from the government to stave off worsening inflation and a burdened supply chain due to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.”
