What kind of jobs do Americans want?
Politicians talk a lot about creating jobs. Most describe wanting more high-paying jobs in innovative industries that are accessible to people who live in cities and rural areas alike – jobs that give people the chance to create and discover.
Those jobs exist in every congressional district in the country. What goes unnoticed by many, however, is the link between these quality jobs and the global economy. Foreign direct investment is responsible for creating millions of great jobs throughout the United States.
