More jobs coming to Michiana
SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Indiana democrats gathered in South Bend on Thursday to kick off the American Jobs Plan Tour that will educate Hoosiers about the $1 trillion plan that will help revitalize Indiana’s infrastructure.
Starting in South Bend, the tour will have 15 stops total throughout the state.
The plan is part of the White House’s strategy to pivot from the pandemic and create good paying jobs with long term careers instead of lower paying, temporary positions.
South Bend Mayor James Mueller made a point today of how the need for better infrastructure will help pave the way for economic recovery and create broadband internet access.
“Not only is this going to build to the future, make us more competitive, compete with the world, build our economy stronger, have other jobs that result from this, but it’s also going to create good jobs right now,” said South Bend Mayor James Mueller.
The tour's next stops include Lafayette on Thursday and Hancock County over the coming weekend.
