Washington, DC - Today, more Americans are working than ever before. Virtually every demographic is achieving historic low unemployment rates. As the Trump Administration’s policies continue to fuel economic growth, we have seen millions of Americans come off the sidelines and rejoin the workforce. In fact, job openings have exceeded the number of job seekers for well over a year. Maintaining that growth will require strengthening policies to support working families, including increasing access to affordable, high quality child care.

Washington, DC - Under the Trump Administration, economic growth continues to exceed expectations. For 16 straight months, wages have grown by at least 3.0 percent, a pace not seen in more than 10 years. Additionally, for 19 straight months, job openings have exceeded job seekers, something never recorded before President Trump took office. Higher wages and plentiful jobs create strong incentives for Americans to join the labor force. In October, nearly three quarters of people entering employment came from outside of the labor force, which is a historic high. Even with impressive labor market gains, high child care expenses limit parents’ options to work outside of the home.
