Job Creation

To strengthen the middle class and help struggling families we must do more to create jobs and grow an economy that works for everyone. This means helping our small businesses and local industries that can support good paying jobs for years to come, including aerospace, manufacturing, high-tech, sustainable agriculture, clean energy and health care. We must support businesses that are creating family wage jobs and invest in the training, education and skills of our workers to ensure they are prepared for success. To help families struggling to make ends meet, I fought for and secured $200 million in job-training funds to help low-income individuals receiving nutrition assistance get the skills and training they need to get a good-paying job and become self-sufficient.
