This National Manufacturing Day, Bidenomics is Bringing Jobs Back to Oklahoma

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK, — OCTOBER 6, 2023 – Today, the Oklahoma Democratic Party Chair Alicia Andrew released the following statement marking National Manufacturing Day:

“Bidenomics is delivering an American economic boom in Oklahoma and across the country, creating nearly 14 million jobs — including 815,000 in manufacturing alone and 2,700 in Oklahoma — spurring billions of dollars in investments and boosting America’s global competitiveness. While MAGA Republicans’ failed trickle-down agenda cost America manufacturing jobs. They created incentives to ship jobs overseas; Bidenomics is building the economy from the bottom up and middle out with manufacturing at the forefront.”

Here’s a look at how Bidenomics is delivering a manufacturing boom in Oklahoma and across the country after the Trump administration failed:

  • Creating record job growth: Today, the U.S. Department of Labor announced that nonfarm payrolls increased by 336,000 jobs in September — nearly doubling expectations and bringing the total jobs created under President Biden’s leadership to nearly 14 million, the most jobs ever created in one term.
  • Boosting manufacturing jobs and investments: Under President Biden, 815,000 manufacturing jobs have been created, and another 830,000 in construction and engineering — more than at any point under the last administration. Investments in manufacturing and construction hit an all-time high and nearly doubled after falling under the previous president.
  • Investing in industries of the future: Under the Biden-Harris administration, private companies have announced $516 billion, including over $1.6 billion in Oklahoma alone, in commitments to invest in 21st-century industries, including semiconductors and electronics, biomanufacturing, clean energy, and more.
  • Bolstering American leadership in semiconductor manufacturing: The CHIPS and Science Act has unlocked $39 billion to encourage American leadership in the semiconductor manufacturing industry while creating tens of thousands of good-paying, union construction jobs and thousands more high-skilled manufacturing jobs — as well as catalyzing hundreds of billions in private investments.
  • Creating jobs and workforce pipelines for American workers: The White House announced the creation of workforce hubs to create pipelines for Americans to access good-paying jobs in the semiconductor industry and other industries seeing an increase in investments driven by President Biden’s Investing in America agenda — including CHIPS, the Inflation Reduction Act, and the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.
