What has Obama ever done about...JOBS?

At a time when workers are under attack by big corporations, special interests, and their cronies in government, President Obama has been an unyielding friend to working men and women. He has stayed true to the vision he outlined to the UFCW nearly four years ago. He is the only candidate for President in 2012 that has our interests at heart.

Despite what the opposition is saying, President Obama has taken great leaps and bounds to improve the job situation in America:
  • Firstly, President Obama helped stave off a second Great Depression by signing The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 that created 2.8 million jobs through investments in education, infrastructure, and clean energy.
  • Second, the president has single-handedly rescued the U.S. auto industry from demise, which in turn saved 1 million jobs. 
  • Also, President Obama has advocated for the approval of the American Jobs Act, which would put 2 million more Americans back to work rebuilding our nation. Many of the provisions outlined in this act have been supported by both the Democrats and the Republicans, and are designed to operate without adding any further debt to the nation.

It's time for President Obama's critics to look at the facts.  The President has served as a continuous ally for the working people of America, and for the idea that what is good for our country's workers is good for our economy.
