President Barack Obama says all American workers deserve to know that if they lose their jobs, their country will help them train for a better one.

In his weekly radio and Internet address, Obama says Congress has taken steps in the right direction by approving job-training legislation. But he says there's much more the U.S. can do for the middle class and those aspiring to join it.

Obama says Vice President Joe Biden next week will release a report on how the U.S. can improve its job-training system. The president says he'll visit a Los Angeles community college where workers are being retrained for jobs in health care.

In the Republican address, Rep. Steve Scalise of Louisiana says Obama should encourage Senate Democrats to pass House-approved bills to put Americans back to work.
