Public Workers First on Obama's Jobs Agenda

President Obama will ask Congress to pass a piece of the American Jobs Act that would allow states and local agencies to rehire laid-off teachers, firefighters, and police, White House deputy press secretary Josh Earnest said on Sunday.


The legislation is the first in a series of proposals taken from the president's jobs plan that has been parceled after the Senate blocked the full bill last week.

Audiences in towns across North Carolina and Virginia can expect the jobs of public workers to be the focus of the speeches they will hear Obama deliver when he visits there Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday this week.
