New Billboard: Biden Needs to Stop Siding with Unions and Push to Reopen Schools Now

Job Creators Network launches and associated ad campaign calling out Biden for lackluster efforts to kick-start classroom instruction

Washington D.C. (February 16, 2021) — Today, the Job Creators Network (JCN), a small business advocacy organization, is launching — a webpage that details the Biden administration’s failure to reopen schools, despite the overwhelming data that shows it’s safe. As part of the campaign, JCN erected a billboard in the heart of Times Square to raise awareness of Biden’s decision to side with special interests rather than children.

Alfredo Ortiz, JCN President and CEO, released the following statement:

“Joe Biden’s own CDC Director said it’s safe to reopen schools, even if teachers have not been vaccinated. Yet the White House has distanced itself from those comments and has failed to full-throatedly endorse a return to in-person classroom instruction. It’s clear that Biden is siding with special interests and kowtowing to the teacher’s unions, rather than the well-being of our country’s children. American schools need to reopen now and Biden should use the bully pulpit to make it happen.”


The billboard is located on the corner of 43rd Street and Broadway. It reads: “Hey Joe — We thought you were going to listen to the science, not special interests. OPEN SCHOOLS NOW.” The adjacent billboard reads: “Find out more at”
