Americans benefitting from Biden’s policies have no idea he’s involved

David Madland explains in why President Joe Biden needs to make clear to voters that his economic policies are creating good union jobs.

Manufacturing construction is booming, and unionized construction jobs are likely to increase — but what does that mean for President Biden?

To get a sense of how the Biden administration’s economic policies impact this key job sector, my team and I at the Center for American Progress conducted a series of interviews with workers at Ford’s massive electric vehicle manufacturing center in Tennessee. We found that while the evidence of Biden’s successful economic policies is clear, workers aren’t necessarily connecting the dots to give credit where it’s due — something Biden will want to count on at the ballot box in November.
