Obama to talk manufacturing in Tennessee

Print | Front Page | Email this story

WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House says President Barack Obama will travel to Tennessee next week to promote his proposals for boosting U.S. manufacturing and high-wage jobs.

Obama will fly on Tuesday to Chattanooga, where he'll visit an Amazon fulfillment center, which packs and ships products to online purchasers. The White House says Obama will discuss ideas he's presented previously to promote American competitiveness and job growth — and also some new ideas.

It's the first in a series of speeches Obama will be giving on specific policy areas. The speeches build on Obama's visits this week to Illinois, Missouri and Florida, where he's speaking broadly about the state of the economy and the need to build a stronger middle class ahead of fiscal fights in Congress this fall.
