By April 17, 2010General

From Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), “Bachmann Meets with MN Members of the National Association of Manufacturers, dated April 15:

Today, U.S. Representative Michele Bachmann (MN-06) met with Minnesota members of the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM). Bachmann listened and shared ideas with the group. “They have good ideas on how to encourage open and competitive hiring processes and how over-taxation can be a job and business killer if not properly instituted,” Bachmann said. “These businesses are clearly one of the main veins towards a full economic recovery for a prosperous America as they employ over 300,000 Minnesotans and account for 12 percent of our country’s GDP. Listening to them is my first job as a United States Representative, and I am thrilled to be able to meet with these hard working Minnesotans to see how we can put their suggestions to work.”

The group is in Washington, D.C. as part of the NAM national conference, NAM is the largest industrial representation of manufacturers in the country designed, “to inform legislators, the Administration, the media, policy influencers and the public about manufacturing’s vital leadership in innovation, job opportunity, technological progress and economic security,” according to NAM.org.

Thank you!
