ICYMI: POTUS IS BRINGING MANUFACTURING JOBS BACK TO THE U.S.
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Manufacturing jobs are coming back to the U.S. thanks to President Biden’s leadership. From coast to coast, new factories are opening up to manufacture fiber-optic cable (part of President Biden’s efforts to expand affordable internet access), build car batteries for electric vehicles (boosted by investments in the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law President Biden signed), and more. These new investments are bringing jobs and manufacturing back home to the U.S., helping to fuel our economy and lower costs for working families.
From the Inflation Reduction Act to the CHIPS Act to the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, President Biden is building an economy that works for the middle class – not the ultra wealthy and big corporations. Meanwhile, the majority of Republicans in Congress voted against these critical bills to revitalize American manufacturing, create good-paying jobs, and lower costs for families.
