WAR ON WORK NEWSLETTER—8.20.2021
- BY Robin Walker
FGA’s Vice President of Communications, Nick Stehle, has a fantastic piece in the Wall Street Journal blasting President Biden’s child tax credit.
We know the child tax credit is another part of Biden’s war on work. It will only encourage government dependency with “free” money. Combined with the ongoing federal unemployment bonus, the child tax credit will only help ensure workers remain on the sideline. Don’t miss this brand new WSJ op-ed on Biden’s economy-killing tax credit.
In case you missed it, the Biden administration just proposed a massive increase in food stamp funding. Amidst all of the international turmoil, the administration thinks it can sneak through the largest permanent funding increase to food stamps in the program’s history.
This is yet another assault in President Biden’s war on work. With more than 10 million open jobs across America and employers desperate to hire workers, now is the time to encourage work. But this massive bump in food stamp funding will only increase government dependency.
Americans should be encouraged to return to work—not stay on welfare. Biden’s food stamp funding boost must be stopped before America’s labor crisis worsens.
While the media may not be talking about it, our country continues to face a very real crisis: a crisis of not having enough workers.
That’s the focus of our latest research. Businesses across the country continue to suffer from a shortage of workers. Many have gone the entire summer without having a full staff.
Businesses struggling to hire enough workers is a story that the media continues to ignore. But we aren’t. These stories show that it’s more important than ever to make sure the bonus expires on time.
