The American Workers Coalition (AmWorkCo or AWC) announced via Twitter that they have endorsed Enterprise small businessman and former Alabama legislator Barry Moore in the AL-2 congressional race.
AmWorkCo is a non-partisan, non-funded group dedicated to educating U.S. legislators regarding the facts about U.S. STEM Education and Employment and the devastating effects of off-shoring, outsourcing, and the lack of data must stay laws. A central focus of the group is preserving American jobs for American Workers through visa reform and other legislative changes to remove laws that currently favor foreign workers over Americans.
Barry Moore said in a statement:
“I’m honored to receive the endorsement of the American Workers Coalition. This group does important work in fighting to correct our dysfunctional visa system that favors foreign workers over Americans. Our current laws have created situations where Americans were forced to train their foreign-born replacements before being laid off, and that’s not right. It’s also bad for our economy, our people and our country.
“We have to rebuild our economy, and that means bringing back American jobs and making sure those jobs go to Americans. As the 2nd District’s Congressman, I’ll do everything I can to support American workers and American businesses. I refuse to believe that we can’t produce enough qualified workers, especially in the STEM fields, right here at home.
“If we’ve learned anything these last few months, it’s that America has to bring our industry back home. We cannot allow China or any other country to control the production of those things which we absolutely must-have. I thank the American Workers Coalition for their efforts in support of the American worker, and I support their # HireAmerican, #BringBackUSAJobs goals. I look forward to working with them in the next Congress.”
