Joint Economic Committee Democrats Chairman - Rep. Don Beyer (D-VA)

Press Releases

Today, the Joint Economic Committee (JEC) released a new analysis of wage data that shows workers saw their earnings rise 4.5% in 2021, the fastest pace of growth in almost four decades.

According to recent data, gains were particularly strong for job switchers and low-income workers. Despite inflation, many workers are seeing real wage gains, a reflection of strong consumer demand for both goods and services. Strong demand for workers improves workers’ bargaining power and their wages.
