Press ReleaseDecember 3, 2021


Today, the U.S. Department of Labor released its monthly jobs report. The US economy added 210,000 jobs in November. The labor force participation rate was 61.8% in November.

Alfredo Ortiz, President and CEO of the Job Creators Network (JCN), released the following statement: 

“The holiday season is typically the best time of the year for small businesses and job growth. For many small businesses, their annual profit comes exclusively from the holiday season; the rest of the year they’re in the red. With that in mind, November’s job growth is especially bad and proof that policies of the Biden Administration are killing American work ethic and exceptionalism. Excessive and unnecessary government spending is continuing to cause inflation to outpace wage gains- this ‘Biden Pay Cut’ will only be exacerbated with more proposed spending on the way. The results of the ‘Biden Pay Cut’ are clear; despite a strong job market our labor problem persists with 6.9 million Americans still unemployed. The Administration’s ‘War on Small Business’ is creating headwinds that are artificially limiting job growth. Inflation, a near-record labor shortage, and supply-chain disruptions are already causing pain for the small business community. Now, we’re just weeks away from the vaccine mandate taking effect. JCN was the first small business advocacy group to sue the Administration. We are fighting the mandate, and we are also fighting against the $5 trillion ‘human infrastructure’ bill the Senate is planning to vote on this month. That bill is a job killer; it will raise taxes, spur inflation, and add to our record debt. Senators Manchin and Sinema will have to choose between Biden and their local small businesses. The choice is obvious, and it will be the most important choice of their careers.”
