Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – Today Congressmen Raja Krishnamoorthi (D-IL) and Mike Gallagher (R-WI) announced their creation and launch of the Middle Class Jobs Caucus. The group will work to find bipartisan solutions to the key issues facing America’s middle class and working families such as job creation, wage increases, and economic growth.

“Every era of prosperity in our history has been built on a thriving middle class. In the plainest terms, middle-class jobs mean a strong America,” said Rep. Krishnamoorthi. “This caucus will help to create those jobs through focusing on key issues facing working families, such as strengthening our job training and infrastructure.” 

In response to launching the Caucus today, Rep. Gallagher said “Addressing the needs of our middle class and working families is not a partisan issue and it urgently requires a common-sense, bipartisan solution. I look forward to working with Rep. Krishnamoorthi to advocate for our citizens who are doing their best to work and raise a family in this country.” Rep. Gallagher continued, “I highly encourage my colleagues in the 115th Congress to join us in our effort to create better paying jobs and kick start the economy so that all Americans have the ability to flourish.”
