American Jobs Plan Upholds Biden’s Promise to Reward Work
WASHINGTON — Third Way today released the following statement from Gabe Horwitz, Senior Vice President of Third Way’s Economic Program:
"This is what presidential leadership looks like. The Biden-Harris Administration’s American Jobs Plan is a bold and ambitious plan to get Americans back to work. As Third Way’s Climate and Energy Team notes, it is “the most ambitious climate and clean energy plan undertaken by any US administration.” And on top of that, this plan upholds a central tenet of President Biden’s economic strategy: rewarding work, not just wealth.
"As we emerge from this pandemic, the Biden-Harris Administration is showing what it takes to ensure that work leads to prosperity. In addition to the creation of jobs through infrastructure and climate initiatives, this plan includes a massive investment in workforce training so that we toward a national apprenticeship program and one million apprenticeships. It makes the necessary investments so broadband reaches everyone in the country. It bolsters child care facilities to help working parents. And it injects a massive amount of capital to small- and medium-size manufacturers, while prioritizing innovation. We look forward to working with the Biden team and Congress to ensure this becomes law."
