We ought to ensure our workers have the skills they need to find employment in today’s in-demand jobs, help small businesses innovate and compete in today’s market, and invest in 21st-century infrastructure. I appreciate the work Thompson Creek is doing to facilitate manufacturing in our state.”

“We are pleased to host Congressman Hoyer [Oct. 5] and appreciate his efforts to promote manufacturing in the United States,” said Rick Wuest, president of Thompson Creek. “Thompson Creek is proud to be an example of how manufacturing can thrive in America, create jobs and expand opportunities for the people of Maryland.”
