Debbie Dingell: Supports additional extension of unemployment insurance

It is vital for Michigan that we expand our manufacturing base while diversifying our state's economy. I will work closely with both business and labor to develop comprehensive policies to move our region forward and grow our economy in southeast Michigan. Working with our auto industry and our workers, we must remain focused on policies that will strengthen our economy. A number of policies have contributed to our economic recovery including the Auto Industry Recovery Act, and an extension of unemployment insurance, which Congress needs to support again. But we can and need to do more.

We have too many young people, as well as older workers, who can't find a job because the jobs have gone away. In some instances, they are ready and willing to work but can't find a job because they don't have the education or skills needed in the workplace. We need to help create more jobs and ensure workers have access to the education and training they need to be successful.
