President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden are touting job training programs. Speaking at a community college in Pennsylvania, the President said more people need to be trained for better jobs. He unveiled plans to provide hundreds of millions of dollars for job training programs. Obama said there’s a growing demand for skilled workers. He also insisted that true economic growth comes from the “bottom up and from the middle class out.”

The money will be directed at job training programs that aim to produce highly skilled workers. Community colleges will be urged to partner with local businesses and compete for 500-million dollars in federal grant money. Another 100-million dollars will be devoted to apprenticeship programs. Introducing the President in his native Pennsylvania, Vice President Biden said the U.S. continues to recover from the deep recession but stated the economy is “at a crossroads.”  (Metro Networks Inc)
