Did you miss TTD Secretary-Treasurer Larry Willis discussing the importance of investing in transportation and the potential government shutdown on America’s Work Force Radio on Monday? You’re in luck — you can listen to the show here on the MoveAmerica blog.
In a recently launched Huffington Post series, TTD explores the connection between a modernized, well-funded transportation system and a stronger middle class. Larry commented on this connection between smart transportation investment and middle class workers in the interview: “For every billion dollars you invest, you have 20,000 jobs you create just on the construction side.”
Listen to the show to learn more about how infrastructure investment would boost the middle class and how a government shutdown would hurt workers.
