Despite a recent uptick, the number of people filing claims for unemployment insurance plunged by 27,000 last week, resuming its downward trend. It remains near lows not seen since the late 1960s.

Pro-growth policies are working: Since the enactment of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, growth in earnings of rank-and-file workers has accelerated to a recovery high, while inflation is below the Fed’s 2 percent inflation target.
In addition to providing broad-based tax relief, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act created Opportunity Zones (OZs), drawn from legislation introduced by Senator Tim Scott (S.293) and former Representative Pat Tiberi (H.R.828), the Investing in Opportunity Act. OZs encourage long-term private capital investment to revitalize low-income areas.
