"We have put forward concrete proposals to grow our economy and help put more Americans back to work, and I'm fighting to move these plans forward. Our Make It In America initiative would create jobs by strengthening American manufacturing, and the President's American Jobs Act seeks to create jobs, help small businesses grow, and put more money back in Americans' pockets," said Congressman Sires. "Our proposals address Americans' top priorities: creating jobs and growing the economy."
The Make It In America plan is aimed at strengthening the manufacturing industry by creating an encouraging environment for business to innovate and make products in the United States. The documentary unveiled shows why investments in our ability to out-build, out-educate and out-innovate our competitors are critical to strengthening the manufacturing sector, creating well-paying jobs, and ensuring more middle class families can make it in America.
Since launching the initiative in the 111th Congress, seven Make It In America bills have been signed into law that encourage manufacturers to innovate, grow, keep and create good jobs here in the U.S. In May, House Democrats unveiled the Make It In America legislative agenda for the 112th Congress.
