Obama Jobs Plan Involves Infrastructure

Jobs speech Thursday will include proposals for repairing bridges, roads, president says.

President Barack Obama said spending to rebuild the nation’s infrastructure is a key component of his plan to reignite the economy and boost hiring.

In a speech marking the U.S. Labor Day holiday, Obama told a Metro Detroit Central Labor Council rally today that the jobs agenda he’ll unveil in a speech to Congress on Sept. 8 will include proposals that previously have had support from both parties, including putting people back to work by repairing roads and bridges.
