For decades, the U.S. exported jobs and imported products, while other countries surpassed us in critical sectors like clean energy, semiconductors, and biotechnology. Thanks to President Biden’s economic plan – including his American Rescue Plan, Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, CHIPS and Science Act, and Inflation Reduction Act – that is changing. Since the President took office in 2021, companies have invested over $4 billion in manufacturing across Wisconsin. These investments are increasing the productivity, competitiveness, and resilience of both Wisconsin and our nation’s economy. And they’re creating good-paying jobs, including union jobs and jobs that don’t require a college degree.
Manufacturing the Future in Wisconsin:
Thanks to the President’s economic plan, private companies have committed to invest over $4 billion in Wisconsin since 2021. The state’s economy is now a more attractive place for companies around the world to invest and expand, creating good-paying jobs in the critical industries and supply chains of the 21st century. Just in Wisconsin: Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals has invested in its first fully dedicated drug manufacturing facility, outside of Madison, that will employ 250 new workers. Georgia-Pacific has committed to a major expansion of its Green Bay paper-related production facility, bringing on 100 new employees and hiring over 500 construction workers. And Alliant Energy announced it will build utility scale battery storage facilities at solar farms across south-central Wisconsin using union workers.
