House Democrats Push for Millions of Restoration and Resilience Jobs
WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Representatives Debbie Dingell (D-MI), Raúl M. Grijalva (D-AZ), Jared Huffman (D-CA), Matt Cartwright (D-PA), Alan Lowenthal (D-CA), Deb Haaland (D-NM), Lisa Blunt Rochester (D-DE), and Ruben Gallego (D-AZ) urged House Leadership to include a “Restoration and Resilience Jobs” program in future economic recovery packages.
As unemployment surges past 30 million American workers, millions of good paying jobs can be created restoring natural resources and bolstering community resilience. Restoration investments generate more jobs compared to other alternatives, because most of the investment goes towards labor, rather than materials. An analysis of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act showed conservation investments generated 15 to 33 jobs per million dollars and an economic return of $2.40 for every $1 invested.
