PPI inflation driving prices higher for consumers, straining small business budgets
Press ReleaseFebruary 16, 2023

Washington, D.C. (February 16, 2023) – Today, Alfredo Ortiz, president and CEO of Job Creators Network, released the following statement in response to the latest Bureau of Labor Statistics Producer Price Index (PPI) report, which revealed a 6.0 percent PPI increase year-over-year:

“Today’s PPI report is another reminder of the inflationary U.S. economy and the difficult obstacles facing small businesses across America. Regrettably, instead of fighting inflation and reigning-in federal spending, the Biden administration has aggressively pursued a reckless policy agenda that is squeezing the already thin margins of small businesses. Congress must act quickly to address the core concerns faced by small businesses, and work to implement a bipartisan policy agenda outlined in JCN’s American Small Business Prosperity Plan — an eight-point policy blueprint that is endorsed by Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy.”
