“President Biden has committed to build back better, and the American Jobs Plan meets the moment,” said Congresswoman Suzanne Bonamici. “This comprehensive plan will create millions of good-paying jobs, combat the climate crisis, revitalize manufacturing, and make long overdue investments in our nation’s infrastructure. The economy was not working for everyone before COVID, and the pandemic has exacerbated inequities. I led the call for investing in our nation’s workforce system, and I’m thrilled that the American Jobs Plan includes $100 billion to support workers. Investments in our aging infrastructure are critical, and the investments in the people who will repair and rebuild it are just as important. By supporting quality, paid, on-the-job training programs, we will help more people, especially those who have historically faced barriers to employment, access good-paying jobs. As a leader on the Education and Labor Committee, I look forward to working with the Biden-Harris Administration to pass the  American Jobs Plan to deliver needed investments to working families and communities in NW Oregon and around the country.”
