Evan Bayh and Haley Barbour Visit the Miller Center

Bayh and Barbour at the Miller Center

Evan Bayh and Haley Barbour, former Governors and Co-Chairs of the Milstein Commission on New Manufacturing, visited the Miller Center last week to discuss skilled manufacturing and its impact on middle-class jobs. They participated in two sessions -- a small session with UVA students and a larger "American Forum" -- to outline the recommendations of the Milstein Symposium, which included bringing vocational training back to high schools; facilitating special loans for small manufacturers looking to retrain their workers; and removing the stigma attached to skilled trades.

Photos of their visit are available here. The sessions were recorded and will begin appearing on PBS stations around the country on February 16.
