Pharmaceutical Industry Labor-Management Association Applauds Senator Casey (D-PA) for Biopharmaceutical Job Creation Efforts
Date:12/9/2010

WASHINGTON, Dec. 9, 2010 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Pharmaceutical Industry Labor-Management Association (PILMA) today applauded Pennsylvania Senator Robert Casey's record of leadership on the issue of creating high-quality jobs in the life sciences sector.  This afternoon the senator will be joined by Dave Holveck, CEO of Endo Pharmaceuticals, to advance the discussion of promoting innovation in the industry that leads to job growth.

Senator Casey knows first-hand the critical link between public policies that enable the U.S. pharmaceutical industry to remain globally competitive and putting people to work in good-paying, high-quality jobs.  This past fall Senator Casey toured Sheet Metal Workers Local 19 Training Center in Philadelphia, joined by union and company representatives to identify ways of working together to spur jobs and innovation in the industry.  Today he is taking that hands-on experience and translating it to an important discussion about the role that Congress can play in supporting the men and women who make a living in the pharmaceutical industry. 

PILMA recently released an in-depth report on the very subject of today's event, "Jobs Today: Cures Tomorrow—Innovation and the Biopharmaceutical Industry."  In our report, we note that the United States has "the opportunity to create jobs and strengthen U.S. global competitiveness by both promoting and expanding biopharmaceutical industry investment in R&D." 

The ultimate goal, of course is better patient outcomes.  Across the country, working men and women are utilizing the latest innovations to build and maintain facilities, research and find cures to diseases and enhance and sustain the lives of all Americans.

We look forward to working with Senator Casey and members of both parties to advance a pro-innovation, pro-jobs agenda based on creating a business environment that enables the life sciences sector to continue to thrive here in the United States.
