The Week in Review: USW Convention, How the President Can Create Jobs, the Biden Effect, and More.
The Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) attended the United Steelworkers (USW) 2011 Convention in Las Vegas.
AAM Executive Director Scott Paul laid out a comprehensive plan for how the president and Congress can create jobs.
Economist Fred Bergsten called China “the most protectionist nation in history.”
We called out Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA) for touting the importance of manufacturing in Massachusetts—while not taking the most important step toward improving his state’s industrial base (i. cosponsoring the Currency Reform for Fair Trade Act).
In a phenomenon we’re calling “The Biden Effect,” China increased the value of the Yuan in advance of the Vice President’s trip to Beijing.
Scott Paul talked job creation and manufacturing with Michele Tafoya on WCCO-CBS radio, Minneapolis, MN.
We helped parents find American-made back to school supplies.
