Indiana Democratic Party Statement on May’s Strong Job Report


Biden Administration Creates More Than 2 Million Jobs in First 4 Months — More Than Any Other Administration in History

INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana Democratic Party, the organization that advocates for the future of Indiana and its families, released the following statement after the U.S. Department of Labor announced that nonfarm payrolls increased by more than 550,000 jobs in May:

“Today’s good news is the latest evidence that Joe Biden and Democrats are getting our economy back on track, no thanks to Republicans who have repeatedly tried to stand in the way. During the first four months of the Biden administration, more than 2 million jobs have been created — more than any other administration in history. Meanwhile, long-term unemployment saw the biggest one-month decline in a decade. 

“This historic progress is thanks to Democrats like Congressmen Andre Carson and Frank Mrvan, Jr., who delivered relief so that millions of Americans can put food on the table, pay the bills, and keep their businesses open. Stimulus checks from the American Rescue Plan have substantially reduced economic hardship for families; schools, businesses and communities are reopening; and folks are getting back to work. 

“It’s clear President Biden’s agenda is working, and Democrats aren’t letting up anytime soon. As we continue to feel progress, we must push forward and pass the American Jobs Plan and American Families Plan to create more good jobs and invest in our future.” – Lauren Ganapini, executive director of the Indiana Democratic Party
