"Cheri on Shift" visits Rockford manufacturing company

ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) -- Congresswoman Cheri Bustos is in the stateline, getting her hands dirty at a local company.

Since entering office, the Congresswoman has held more than 50 "Cheri on Shift" events at local businesses.

Bustos says it gives her a chance to learn hands on what workers do and take back with her to Washington D.C. the needs of people working in the stateline.

Today, at Specialty Screw Corporation in Rockford, Bustos was on the factory floor learning how to make screws, nuts and bolts.
