AAM participates in A. Philip Randolph Conference

Posted by LDonia on 09/05/2013

Last week, the Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) was excited to participate in the 44th A. Philip Randolph National Education Conference, in Washington, DC.

According to AAM field coordinator Mike Mitchell, who was in attendance, AAM President Scott Paul (pictured) told the conference there are three things that we could do to strengthen our manufacturing Industry: invest in education/training, buy American-made, and hold our trading partners accountable when they violate trade agreements.

That's a refrain we at AAM have sung for quite some time.
