Obama to make US jobs speech

President Barack Obama will outline plans to boost US jobs in a prime time television address on Thursday evening.

His speech is expected to include proposals such as tax credits and infrastructure spending and a renewed call to shrink the US deficit.

Mr Obama has said political bickering must be put aside if the US economy is to recover and long-term jobs are to be created.
