INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana Democratic Party, the organization that advocates for Hoosiers, their families and workers, today is highlighting President Biden’s accomplishments that have brought $11 billion in investment to our state and created almost 200,000 new jobs.
Last week, the administration kicked off its Investing in America Tour, where the President and members of the cabinet are traveling the country to show how good-paying jobs, including union jobs, are making a comeback in America.
Just yesterday, in Findlay, Minnesota, President Biden celebrated Cummins’ upcoming $1 billion worth of investments in low and zero-carbon engine development in Indiana, North Carolina, and New York.
President Biden is delivering on his promise to rebuild American manufacturing. Democratic Congressmen Frank Mrvan and André Carson were the only members of the Hoosier delegation to vote for the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act and the Inflation Reduction Act that made these investments possible.
In fact, by adding 190,000 new jobs, Indiana unemployment is steady at just 3.1%, down from 4.7% at the start of 2021. While the Republican supermajority state legislature attempts to undercut union and good-paying jobs, Hoosier Democrats are focused on real results for our economy.
“President Biden and Indiana Democrats’ economic agenda is starting to deliver for Hoosier families after years of tough times,” said Indiana Democratic Party Chairman Mike Schmuhl.
“We are seeing billions in private investment flood into our state because of the groundwork laid by the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act and the Inflation Reduction Act. Our unions are gaining members and influence, and more Hoosiers are working good-paying jobs because of the work of Congressmen Frank Mrvan and André Carson.
“Nearly 200,000 new jobs have been created in Indiana because of these accomplishments, which have led to investments in Hoosiers by Cummins, Eli Lilly, General Motors and many other businesses. Democrats will keep delivering a brighter future by focusing on bread-and-butter issues like good jobs and affordable healthcare.”
World-class companies are employing more Hoosiers. In the electric vehicle sector, four companies are opening plants across the state, including General Motors, Stellantis, and Entek. A number of biomanufacturing firms are investing in the state, including Evonik, List Bio, Bunge, Skywater and Catalent. In addition, Eli Lilly is expanding its presence in the state with a $2.1 billion biomanufacturing project.
