During President Obama’s weekly radio broadcast last week, Obama hailed the Jobs and Competiveness Council, saying that it would, “generate good ideas about how we can spur hiring, educate our workers to compete in the 21st century, and attract the best jobs and businesses to America rather than seeing them spring up overseas.”President Obama announced last week that the Chief Executive Officer of the General Electric Company, Jeffrey Immelt, was appointed to lead the Council, and that he, Obama, had nothing but confidence in his ability to run the newly formed panel.Obama is optimistic that the White House directed jobs council will be a group which will help to motivate, and stimulate greater competiveness and the creation of more, much-needed jobs.
