Pelosi calls for more government spending and “bold action” in response to weak monthly jobs report

Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called for more government spending in response to a weaker than expected April jobs report.

“The disappointing April jobs report highlights the urgent need to pass President Biden’s American Jobs and Families Plans,” Pelosi said in a statement.

“We need to take bold action to Build Back Better from this crisis by investing in our nation, our workers and our families,” she added.

Per Fox Business “The April jobs report released Friday showed the US economy heavily missed Wall Street’s mark, adding a measly 266,000 new jobs as the country continues to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.”
