Andy Levin on Jobs

 

 


Too many of our jobs have been offshored or contracted out

Q: What federal policies do you support to help members of all strata of the American public improve their economic positions?

Andy Levin: Too many of our jobs have been offshored, contracted out, privatized and made part-time or temporary, and the result is many among us won't be able to enjoy a middle-class life and retirement. It's time to put what's good for hardworking Americans at the center of every policy decision: taxation, education, regulation, economic development. We also need to help our workers transition to the jobs of tomorrow, like we did when, as Michigan's first Chief Workforce Officer, we created "No Worker Left Behind," helping 120,000 get new jobs during the Great Recession.

Too many jobs have been offshored and privatized

The dignity and value of work has been attacked and undermined in every way in this country. Too many of our jobs have been offshored, contracted out, privatized and made part-time or temporary. Lower pay and fewer pensions and benefits mean many among us won't be able to enjoy a solid middle-class life and retirement. The result? Unprecedented income inequality. It's time to put what's good for the average hard working American at the center of every policy decision: taxation, education, regulation, economic development-you name it. It's time for a new movement to restore the middle class in this country.

No Worker Left Behind: 120,000 jobs during Great Recession

We need to help our workers transition to the jobs of tomorrow, like we did when, as Michigan's first Chief Workforce Officer, I created "No Worker Left Behind," helping 162,000 Michiganders get training and over 120,000 get new jobs during the Great Recession. A university education is not, and should not be, the only path to a decent living.
