As the presidential race continues to heat up, both candidates are trying to persuade still-undecided voters that they have what it takes to help put more people back to work.

During a recent radio address, President Barack Obama said that voters should remember the crucial role his administration had played when it came to saving the auto industry. The Los Angeles Times reports that Obama has focusing his efforts on winning over Ohio residents, a crucial swing state that has been close in recent polls.

"Just a few years ago, the auto industry wasn't just struggling — it was flat-lining," Obama said in the weekly address. "But we refused to throw in the towel and do nothing.  We refused to let Detroit go bankrupt.  We bet on American workers and American ingenuity, and three years later, that bet is paying off in a big way."

Hiring within the industry is expected to continue in many parts of the country. The Associated Press reported that the General Motors is expected to increase information technology staff by 10,000 to internally develop new software.
