President Obama took to congress today an act to jolt our failing economy. The American Jobs Act is a plan to put our people back into the workforce and put an end to the economy’s deficit. President Obama has had enough with our stalled economy. He wants to put an end to the many people being laid off, not being able to find work, or living pay check to pay check trying to make ends meet; he says ENOUGH! This plan is set to help veterans (about damn time), teachers, construction workers, and more. The Job Act will also create tax breaks for small businesses if they hire new hires and provide on the job training.
According to the President there is over 35k schools that needs to be repaired and modernized which will open up jobs to the construction workers that have not been able to find work. Sounds like a Win-Win to me. This plan will give the children a better education by being in a comfortable environment with science labs and better technology to help the future generation succeed. Repairing these schools will open up more jobs for our teachers and allow them an opportunity to teach our kids.
We shouldn’t be in a race to the bottom. Where we try to offer the cheapest labor and the worse pollution standards. America should be in a race to the top and I believe we can win that race.
The unemployment rates among African Americans alone are ridiculously high. There should be nothing controversial about this plan although we all know there will be some sideshows trying to block what seems to be a good thing for this economy. “DOING NOTHING IS NOT AN OPTION!” I don’t know about you but I’m tired of this economic struggle. There are people stressed out because they don’t know how they’re gonna pay their next bill or how their doing to feed and clothe their kids. Its unacceptable. Something has to be done! I would love to see “MADE IN AMERICA” on an item for once.
This job plan motivates me again because I was sick of the budget cut debates. Have you given up on this economy? Do you still have faith in our President? Will businesses stop being so cheap and open their doors to the fully qualified workers that’s dedicated and loyal? But most importantly will this plan be a commitment to recover and strengthen our economy?
In case you missed it check it out. I want to know what you have to say.
