ANNAPOLIS, MD (April 1, 2011) – Governor Martin O’Malley will offer remarks before the Building and Construction Trades 2011 Legislative Conference on Monday. The Governor will join U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (WV), Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (DC), and AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka, among others, at the conference which will focus on jobs and infrastructure investment.
While unemployment nationally has dropped for four straight months, the official national unemployment rate for construction remains around 20%, leaving many skilled workers exiting the construction workforce and infrastructure projects going unfunded. Governor O’Malley will address the need for infrastructure investment in America’s new economy, and our ability to win the future by putting skilled construction workers back to work.
