The Build Back Better Agenda Would Create 10+ Million Jobs In Physical Infrastructure, 5 Million Jobs in Caregiving, 1+ Million Jobs in Clean Energy

POLLING: 62% of Voters, Including a Majority of Independents, Support Passing the Investments in the American Jobs and Families Plans Together Through Reconciliation

WASHINGTON, DC — Today, Invest in America Action launched a new digital ad campaign, “Leave No Jobs Behind,” emphasizing the need to pass the budget resolution and subsequent reconciliation package that make up the Build Back Better Agenda to ensure that not a single job is left behind on the road to rebuilding and modernizing the nation’s economy for middle class Americans.

The first ad in the campaign urges Congress to support critical investments in clean energy, the care economy, and public infrastructure in the Build Back Better agenda that would create millions of good-paying jobs — and to resist efforts to cut any of these investments and leave good jobs on the table. The ad also urges Congress to ensure these investments are paid for by making those earning over $400,000 and big corporations pay their fair share — not one penny from working and middle-class families.

“The Build Back Better agenda means three things: jobs, jobs and jobs,” said Zac Petkanas, senior advisor for Invest in America Action.  “It means more jobs and better jobs that are paid for by ending tax breaks for corporations that ship jobs overseas. That’s why we must resist any cuts to the budget resolution that will leave Americans unemployed or our nation less able to compete with China in a 21st century global economy. We must leave no job behind by passing the Build Back Better agenda.”

The investments in President Biden’s full Build Back Better agenda will create millions of jobs and boost overall productivity: 

The Build Back Better agenda would create jobs all across the country, including: 

  • 332,630+ jobs in Arizona

  • 62,000+ jobs in New Hampshire

  • 81,900+ jobs in West Virginia

  • 390,000+ jobs in Virginia
