It’s time to face the hard truth: Workers, their families, and our friends who labor in the nation’s manufacturing sector are under siege.
Since 2000 our country has seen almost five million good-paying manufacturing jobs vanish — more than 299,000 in Michigan. These are the types of jobs that have provided stability for our families for generations.
Our nation’s energy infrastructure is vital to the creation of jobs for Michigan’s construction and manufacturing workers. More importantly, it also ensures an affordable and reliable supply of energy across Michigan.
