To launch the third Investing in America tour, the Biden-Harris Administration is hosting a White House convening to officially kick off its Advanced Manufacturing Workforce Sprint—an intensive drive to build a diverse, skilled pipeline of workers for good jobs, including union jobs, in advanced manufacturing. The President’s historic Investing in America agenda—including the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, CHIPS and Science Act, Inflation Reduction Act, and American Rescue Plan—is creating strong demand for the skilled advanced manufacturing workers in clean energy, biotechnology, semiconductors, and more.
The nationwide sprint is bringing together employers, unions, education and training providers, community-based groups, philanthropic organizations, and state and local governments to take concrete steps to help more Americans train for and succeed in this growing field. Over the next two weeks, as part of the third installment of the Investing in America tour, President Biden and senior Administration officials will travel to communities across the country to highlight the impact of the President’s Bidenomics agenda—including how his Administration is creating manufacturing jobs in industries of the future. To celebrate the official kickoff of the Investing in America tour and the Sprint, President Biden will deliver remarks marking Jobs Day and National Manufacturing Day, citing the 800,000 manufacturing jobs created under his Administration. First Lady Jill Biden is also visiting Dutchess Community College in Fishkill, New York today to attend the launch of a new mechatronics training lab funded in part by the President’s American Rescue Plan.
