During a recent radio address from President Barack Obama, he explained the importance of job creation among companies in the U.S. He expressed that the government had been successful during its "Year of Action," where it focused on economic stimulation through job growth, training, college preparation and minimum wage boosts.

"We need to keep going – to create more good jobs and give middle-class families a sense of security, and I want to work with Congress to do it," Obama said, as quoted by CBS News.

Throughout the year, the president emphasized that the government has ensured higher wages for employees, sponsored more rigorous job training initiatives and sought to attract manufacturing opportunities for American workers.

Specifically, Obama noted that the government has "launched new hubs to attract more high-tech manufacturing jobs." This includes those in Raleigh, Chicago and Detroit, all of which create high-skilled positions for those working in the manufacturing industry, according to The Huffington Post. The initiative aims to create at least six of these institutions by the end of 2014.
