"A lot of folks are still looking for work. And many folks who do have jobs are finding that their paychecks aren't keeping up with the rising costs for everything from tuition to groceries to gas. In fact, in a lot of places across the country, like Indiana, gas is reaching all-time high," said Obama.
"So although our economy hasn't been the focus of the news this week, not a day that goes by that I'm not focused on your jobs, your hopes and your dreams. And that's why I came here to Allison Transmissions. The clean ' jobs at this plant are the jobs of the future - jobs that pay well right here in America. And in the years ahead, it's clean ' companies like this one that will keep our economy growing, create new jobs, and make sure America remains the most prosperous nation in the world."
