TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - At a time when nearly 14 million Americans are unemployed, President Obama shared his plans for job growth.
Brett Williams watched the speech at an unemployment office that he frequently visits. He’s been unemployed for two years.
As a former construction worker, Williams lit up when President Obama discussed projects on our roads and schools.
“Is it too late, though? People are already hurting. Homes have been lost,” said Williams as he listened to the President’s address.
Although, most people in the room watching the speech say they liked the President’s plans, they fear they won’t see them put into place.
“We’ve heard this all before,” said Williams.
Although, he's hopeful that this time will be different.
"Get to work, so we can get to work," he said is his message to the President.
