Mr. CLARKE of Michigan. Mr. Speaker, yesterday I met a young entrepreneur who owns a remanufacturing business headquartered in Metro Detroit. In spite of his success, he faces one major challenge--he can't hire enough people with the skills necessary to rebuild the products that could be sold around the world. So that's why I ask this House, this Congress, to stay in session to do our work so that we can train our people, especially our young people, for the jobs that exist in this country that are going unfilled; train them with the skills that they need to sell and rebuild the best products that can be sold worldwide. This is how we can create more jobs in our economy and make the United States an even stronger contributor to our world.
