Jekyll and Hyde Moment for Business

Is it just me or have you noticed it too?

“What I can say is the Obama administration is business-friendly. We want to help with our actions, not with our words, “ says Nicole Lamb-Hale, Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Manufacturing and Services. She made this comment during a keynote address at Industry Week’s “Pathway to Manufacturing Prosperity Conference” last Thursday in Chicago.

Thank you Dr. Jekyll.

And now  for Mr. Hyde?

“To those who have, for far too long, abused workers, put them in harm’s way, denied them fair pay, let me be clear: There is a new sheriff in town.”   Secretary  Hilda Solis’ comments following her swearing in at the Department of Labor.

Back to Dr. Jekyll: 

“We have to nurture manufacturing here. It’s something that traditionally has been a backbone for U.S. economic growth.”

 Industry Week reports: ‘ There has often been a sense of distrust between industry and the government sector which has only strained in recent years. That can only change, said Lamb-Hale, in baby steps. So what do you think?

Is the current administration business friendly?
