Washington, D.C. — The following statement can be attributed to U.S. Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Suzanne P. Clark.
“We have 4.6 million more open jobs than we have people looking for work. We can’t get inflation under control, unclog our supply chains, or fully grow our economy unless we fill these open jobs.
“The Chamber applauds the Biden administration’s recent moves to increase H-2B visas and actions that make it easier to employ international STEM workers, but we must do more. Addressing the worker shortage crisis needs to be a top priority for the Administration and Congress.”
