Prime Minister Kevin Rudd has announced a $35.6 million investment, to retrain Australia’s manufacturing workforce.

The Prime Minister has been in the Sydney seat of Bennelong today, for the second time since the campaign began, to announce the Manufacturing Skills Plus Program, under a re-elected Labor government.

Mr Rudd says the announcement builds on the $35 million youth unemployment program he announced yesterday.

The program is expected to assist 7000 new and existing manufacturing workers around the country.

Mr Rudd says Labor is committed to the future of manufacturing in Australia.
