On Wednesday February 8, President Biden will visit with Wisconsin workers in Madison at the Wisconsin Laborers’ District Council Training Center. On this occasion, Wisconsin AFL-CIO President Stephanie Bloomingdale released the following statement.
“On behalf of Wisconsin’s union workers, I welcome President Biden to Madison today, and we more than welcome the discussion of the accomplishments in the first two years of his administration.
Just as President Biden laid out in his speech last night, investments across many sectors of our economy have made a real difference for working people in Wisconsin and across the country. His bold initiatives are delivering economic benefit and stabilization across the board, and his confidence in the American worker is central to all of his efforts.
In an economy that presents significant challenges, President Biden has managed to achieve massive job growth and the lowest unemployment rate in more than 50 years. We have further to go, but it is clear we are on the right track.
Last night in his State of the Union speech and in his visit to Madison today, President Biden is showing a true understanding that a strong American economy is dependent on the creation of strong, family-supporting union jobs. Thanks to these investments, these jobs are bringing a direct benefit to our communities.Thanks to President Biden, the state of our unions is strong, and getting stronger.”
