"I was part of a 200-member delegation representing the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) that traveled to Washington, D.C., to meet with Congress to convey how vitally important a strong manufacturing base is to the long-term economic security of our nation," says David LaCook, CEO of FabEnCo. "American manufacturers must work together to prevent the further erosion of job opportunities available to American workers. At FabEnCo, we believe it's important to set an example and we hope that others will follow with their own unique programs."
LaCook says the program will impact the company's income (it's employee-owned), But we believe it's the right thing to do and will strengthen our industry and our economy, he says. After all, our job has always been to protect workers from fall hazards on the job. Now we'll also be helping to protect their jobs."
