Congressman Turner remains committed to job creation and economic growth.
Throughout Congressman Turner's time in Congress, our community has successfully grown and retained many manufacturing, defense industry, and high-tech jobs that are important drivers of our local economy as well as industry leaders nation-wide.
Congressman Turner has pushed to increase multiple job and career opportunities within the Dayton area. During his time in Congress, Wright-Patt has successfully added approximately 10,000 jobs and remains the largest single-site employer in the state of Ohio and a huge driver of our regional economy.
Efforts made by Congressman Turner helped pave the way for Fuyao Glass America to establish its U.S. manufacturing plant in Moraine, bringing well over 2,000 jobs to the region. In 2020, Fuyao announced a $46 million investment to expand the plant, helping Southwest Ohio’s economy to continue to grow.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Congressman Turner has supported small businesses by voting to create and fund the Paycheck Protection Program. This vital program has served as a lifeline for over 7,000 businesses in Ohio’s 10th district. In addition, Congressman Turner wrote and introduced the Employer and Employee COVID Protection Act, which will provide aid to those who felt it necessary to leave their jobs due to their employer failing to address their health concerns and will also protect employers who have continued to provide safe working conditions. He has also cosponsored bills such as the RESTART Act to help small businesses as they work towards regaining their losses from the pandemic.
