On Wednesday, November 3rd, 2021, Steve Staub testified via video in front of the United States Congress House Committee on Economic Disparity and Fairness in Growth.
The topic of the day was: Our Changing Economy: The Economic Effects of Technological Innovation, Automation and the Future of Work
Some of Mr. Staub’s comments included:
“When items are made in the United States you don’t need to worry about getting things off the ships in the ports! It allows us to be more competitive of a country, people are realizing what Made in America really means and how that is so important to allow people to have skills and have a good living wage. The more we manufacture in the United States the more were going to be a country with a higher skill level and higher wages and everyone has the opportunity in this country to succeed.”
