On March 19th at 11:30a.m., in St. Cloud, Minnesota, the Middle Class Task Force will hold a town hall meeting, titled "Road to Recovery: Building a Strong Middle Class through the Recovery Act." The town hall discussion will focus on ways the Recovery Act implementation will help the middle class. The Vice President and task force members will be taking questions submitted thru the website www.AStrongMiddleClass.gov from people all over the country, as well as members of the audience. The Task Force is visiting and holding its meeting at the New Flyer of America Bus Company in St. Cloud, Minnesota. New Flyer is a leader in transit innovation and low-emission, alternative fueled vehicles. Public transportation funding in the Recovery Act will help create private sector jobs and enable more state and local governments add new, low-emission buses and expand public transportation options. In 2008, New Flyer hired more than 90 people at its St. Cloud plant and has operated around the clock to fulfill a two-year backlog of orders. This facility now has 650 employees.
