President Obama is scheduled to speak tonight on one of our Nation's most pressing topics, unemployment. The President is expected to announce a new plan that will increase jobs through new projects that will include the building of roads, bridges and schools in an effort to lower the unemployment rate and many Texomans will be tuning in.
"Maybe I'll watch it on YouTube," said Victoria Johnson, a student at Midwestern State University.
No matter how people plan to watch they all seem to have one thing in common. They want to hear that President Obama has a plan and that there is some relief to the job market coming soon.
"He sure needs to come up with something because there's a lot of people out of work. I'm not looking for a job, I'm retired, but there's a lot of people that are. I don't know what it would be, but hopefully he's got an answer to it," said Parenell Skelton, of Obama's speech.
Johnson added, "Getting out of college in a few years and knowing that I'm going to be looking for a job, it would be nice to know that there's going to be more out there, more available and not just tons of unemployment and that it's going to be hard to pay back student loans."
"A lot of people who have been laid off think there's no jobs in the market anymore and they just keep hearing about more and more layoffs, so maybe encouragement that there are jobs being made and there are positions that are opening up," said Wichita Falls resident Grant Hardaway.
"I would like to know how he's planning on doing it and how he's planning on doing it without costing us a lot of money," said Kim McClellan, another Wichita Falls local.
