We need to get America back to work. Too many families are struggling today, and for too long, politicians have looked out for themselves and their friends, instead of looking out for the middle class. Worse, Republicans in Congress seem more focused on scoring political points than working together to create jobs and get our economy back on track.
In addition to strong and growing businesses, we need strong and healthy labor organizations. I believe without labor unions we would not have a middle class – and today both are shrinking. We must turn that around.
That’s why I have released a jobs plan and announced my campaign with a proposal to create a “Manufacturing Triangle” to focus our area on innovation and rebuilding our manufacturing base.
