Reaction to President Obama's Jobs Speech by Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM)

Posted by scapozzola on 09/08/2011

Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) Executive Director Scott Paul offered the following statement on President Obama’s Jobs Speech:

"The President is right about two things: We must invest in America's infrastructure and the time for action is now. We hope Congress will swiftly approve a sizable and sustained infrastructure bill. Such an action would begin to rebuild America, make our economy more efficient and our businesses more competitive, and boost the demand for manufactured materials like steel. Most importantly, it would create good-paying jobs.

"We have outlined other measures that would create American jobs and that have broad support among voters. We look forward to working with the Administration and Congress to enact an effective jobs plan over the coming weeks."
