You can click here to add your name:I've visited countless manufacturing facilities in places like Asheville and Wilmington and Garner. I've talked to folks in every corner of North Carolina, and many say the same thing -- America needs to focus more on manufacturing.
North Carolina is the fourth largest manufacturing state in the country. The industry, which lost so much over the past decade, is now coming back. Over the past few years, we've successfully added thousands of manufacturing jobs right here in North Carolina -- revitalizing communities and laying the groundwork for us to create even more jobs on all levels of the supply chain.
In my years in the Senate, I've worked across party lines to keep our manufacturing industry growing. And today, I need you with me.
I'm joining some of my colleagues in a petition to demand Congress focus more on creating manufacturing jobs. Add your voice to ours -- sign the petition today:http://manufacturingjobsforamerica.com/...
These jobs are about more than just building computer components or construction materials, they're about building the economic security that allows North Carolinians to put food on the table, pay their mortgages, send their kids to college, and retire comfortably.
We are well positioned for North Carolina to be an American manufacturing hub. With smart investments and a lot of hard work we can grow this industry, train the workforce to fill it, and create the jobs of the future right here at home.
Tell Congress: It's time to focus on manufacturing. Sign our petition:
