Ask the Candidates: How Will You Create Manufacturing Jobs?
During the 2012 campaign, President Obama made a promise to create 1 million new manufacturing jobs in his second term. Only about 370,000 new manufacturing jobs have been created since then. There's almost no chance Obama will reach his goal, as only 30,000 new manufacturing jobs were created in 2015.
It will be up to the next president to lead the charge to create manufacturing jobs. How do the candidates plan to succeed where President Obama couldn’t?
Please ask the current crop of presidential candidates to share their strategy for manufacturing job growth and growing the middle class.
