Another Call to Congress for Jobs
The Las Vegas Sun featured an op-ed today on why Congress should help prolong job growth in manufacturing:
Congress should do its part to keep the job-producing momentum going by exploring other potential incentives that would reward manufacturing companies, big and small, for expanding their workforce. There are many reasons why it would be foolish to let this momentum slip away, particularly at a time when this country is still struggling to create jobs.
Millions of middle-class Americans with useful skills are still sidelined because of the fragile job market. Opening new factories or expanding existing ones will take advantage of those skills. Placing more emphasis on factories also will boost the smaller businesses that supply material to the manufacturers or provide goods and services to the employees.
