Editor’s Note: In Cleveland yesterday, President Barack Obama delivered a major address on the economy, jobs, manufacturing, trade and Fast Track. Here’s Ohio AFL-CIO President Tim Burga’s response.
President Obama has enacted policies that have benefited Ohio’s economy and helped strengthen our middle class. His decision to rescue the auto industry has meant the world to many local economies across the state, saving thousands of family-supporting, middle-class jobs. It was the right decision at the right time, a decision made for all the right reasons.
