The State of the Union: Highlights

  1. On January 20th, 2015 President Obama addressed the nation. Covering issues from the wage gap to internet security. Here are a few of the highlights.
  2. Talk Radio News Service / Flickr “Imagine if we broke out of these tired old patterns. Imagine if we did something different.” President Barack Obama 01.20.15
  3. JOBS “Since 2010, America has put more people back to work than Europe, Japan, & all advanced economies combined. Our manufacturers have added almost 800,000 new jobs.” Mandel Ngan-Pool/Getty Images
  4. Wage Gap: “Congress still needs to pass a law that makes sure a woman is paid the same as a man for doing the same work. Really. It’s 2015. It’s time.” diego_cervo / Getty Images
  5. Open Internet: “I intend to protect a free and open internet, extend its reach to every classroom, and every community, and help folks build the fastest networks, so that the next generation of digital innovators and entrepreneurs have the platform to keep reshaping our world.” NicholasKamm/GettyImages
  6. Community College: “I want to spread that idea all across America, so that two years of college becomes as free and universal in America as high school is today. And I want to work with this Congress, to make sure Americans already burdened with student loans can reduce their monthly payments, so that student debt doesn’t derail anyone’s dreams.” Hill Street Studios / Getty Images
  7. Minimum Wage: We still need to make sure employees get the overtime they’ve earned. And to everyone in this Congress who still refuses to raise the minimum wage, I say this: If you truly believe you could work full-time and support a family on less than $15,000 a year, go try it. “ Alex Wong / Getty Images
  8. Hiring Veterans: “So to every CEO in America, let me repeat: If you want somebody who’s going to get the job done, hire a veteran.” DanielBendjy / Getty Images
