Vice President Joe Biden to Talk Jobs in Rochester
Biden to speak at Albany Engineered Composites and Safran USA on Thursday.
Vice President Joe Biden will visit a Rochester manufacturing firm Thursday and discuss how the Obama administration's policies encouraging partnerships between community colleges and employers are creating jobs.
According to the White House Press Office, Biden will speak at Albany Engineered Composites and Safran USA at 11 a.m. on Thursday.
With plans to hire 400 workers over the next decade, Albany and Safran have teamed up with Great Bay Community College in Portsmouth to design a training program that will ensure workers have access to the advanced manufacturing skills necessary for employment, according to the White House.
Safran is a global high-technology company with annual revenues exceeding $15 billion and core concentrations in aerospace, defense, and security. Albany is a global advanced textiles and materials processing company with revenues of approximately $1 billion and core businesses serving the paper and aerospace composites industries, according to the White House.
Biden's trip to New Hampshire will also occur two days after President Obama delivers the State of the Union address on Tuesday night. The president is expected to talk about creating more jobs.
This will also be the first trip that either Biden or Obama will make to New Hampshire following the New Hampshire Republican Presidential Primary, which was held on Jan. 10, and which was won by former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.
