At least one job specialist and author believes that President Obama's State of the Union address on January 25 could have gone into much more detail about job creation.

"Unless President Obama and the new Congress can fully commit to stimulating start-up companies that create good jobs and invest in retraining to retain good jobs, the nation will lose its global competitiveness," says Mary Walshok, a sociologist who has done research for the U.S. Department of Labor and the dean of continuing education at the University of California San Diego. She is also the co-author, along with Tapan Munroe and Henry DeVries a new book, Closing America's Job Gap which includes studies on the subject.
