Gillibrand talks jobs during Unison tour

NORWICH – U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) toured Unison Industries Tuesday shortly after unveiling her “Made in America” Block Grant Program Act.

The goal of the “Made in America” act is to restructure small- and medium-sized manufacturers in areas of high unemployment. “How are we going to support ... manufacturers’ vision for long-term growth?” Gillibrand queried at the end of her visit. While New York state lost more than 123,000 manufacturing jobs from 2005 to 2010, Gillibrand says advanced and high-tech manufacturing is thriving here.



Gillibrand’s plan offers more support for manufacturers specializing in clean energy technology, and leverages more private investment into New York’s manufacturing hubs.
