Hillary Clinton to talk jobs Thursday at Warren company

DETROIT — When Democrat Hillary Clinton brings her presidential campaign to Michigan this week, she’ll deliver a jobs and economy speech at a Warren company that has expanded its auto supply business into the defense and aerospace industries.

Futuramic Tool and Engineering has benefitted from federal military contracts as well as investing heavily in an apprenticeship program with Macomb Community College.

It will serve as the backdrop for Clinton’s 12:15 p.m. speech Thursday, following on the heels of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s message on the economy to the Detroit Economic Club on Monday.

Clinton’s jobs plan relies heavily on investing in the nation’s infrastructure and in hard hit manufacturing communities, like Detroit and Warren.

She is also expected to attend a big-ticket, private fund-raiser in Birmingham on Wednesday evening. Clinton’s last visit to Michigan was in May when she spoke at the NAACP’s Fight for Freedom dinner.

The speech is not open to the public.
