A Chicago Congressional candidate talks manufacturing

The post below is in no way an endorsement of the candidate or his proposed plan.

Thomas Day, a candidate for Congress in Illinois’ 7th District, released an editorial proposing a plan on how to make Chicago the manufacturing powerhouse it once was. Through a combination of federal support, workforce development, and supply chain updates, Day suggests that Chicago could fill the 30,000 “manufacturing jobs in Chicago waiting for qualified applicants.”

He finishes, “This is a region built on manufacturing. We became the “City of the Big Shoulders” because of our status as a manufacturing center. Yet it would be foolish to feel entitled to Chicago’s place as a manufacturing leader.”
