Job Creators Network Reacts to Jobs Report
Washington, D.C. (April 3, 2020)— Today, the U.S. Department of Labor released its monthly jobs report.
Alfredo Ortiz, President and CEO of the Job Creators Network, released the following statement:
“In March, the unemployment rate rose to 4.4 percent and 701,000 Americans lost their jobs. As President Trump said, we should expect to experience a ‘painful’ next two weeks and perhaps longer. However, there is light at the end of the tunnel. Starting today small businesses can begin applying for the $349 billion Paycheck Protection Program, which will give them much-needed cash to keep payroll flowing, while covering rent, utilities and other overhead. The Trump Administration is laser-focused on making the program work, and JCN is doing its part by mobilizing job creators to participate. The Administration has an all-hands-on-deck mentality, and so do we. We are a resilient country and we will get through this and emerge stronger than ever.”
