WASHINGTON (Sept. 11, 2015) — The International Brotherhood of Teamsters has launched a new campaign, “Let's Get America Working,” to promote a bipartisan effort in Congress to create American jobs by investing in the nation's infrastructure.
Teamsters General President James P. Hoffa announced the program at a press conference in Washington, D.C., Sept. 9. Joining Mr. Hoffa at the press conference were Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx and former Mississippi Governor and Republican National Committee Chairman Haley Barbour.
“Working on transportation, energy and water projects will put thousands to work in construction jobs across the country,” Mr. Hoffa said in his remarks. “It will also improve roads, bridges, ports and other infrastructure, which in turn will help business and improve the U.S. economy.”
