Made in America
October 4, 2019
Throughout Indiana I've met with manufacturers who specialize in steel, motors, car parts, stadium bleachers, and more. No matter their specialty, they’re all focused on creating reliable products, providing Hoosier jobs, and contributing to our southern Indiana economy.
They're dedicated to their craft and I'm dedicated to working for them in Congress by supporting legislation to keep costs down and keep manufacturing jobs here in America.
A common concern I hear from all employers, but especially manufacturing companies, is that their business is thriving but they don't have enough employees to keep up with the growth. As I travel across the district talking to manufacturers, we discuss how we can get more talent into manufacturing and how we can encourage more people to be interested in and excited about entering these fields.
Manufacturing Day serves as a day to inspire young Hoosiers and share the high-paid and high-skilled opportunities available in this field. It's always great to visit the school programs or community partnerships that give students first-hand experience into fields like manufacturing, engineering, science, and technology.
Today, I visited Eagle Manufacturing at Brown County High School. This student run business provides machining, engineering, and design services while giving our students a true first-hand experience in manufacturing and business processes.
In Congress, I'm fighting everyday for an economy that will let our local manufacturing industry thrive for generations to come.
Be of good cheer,
