President Barack Obama pushed for a higher minimum wage during his visit to a re-opened manufacturing plant in Asheville on Wednesday.

Also during his remarks, he said several nice things about Asheville and North Carolina, even hinting at the possibility of moving to North Carolina after he finishes his second Presidential term.

“Hello, North Carolina! It is good to be back.  I love coming to Asheville. Love coming to Asheville.  Michelle and I always talk about how after this whole presidency thing, we’re looking for a little spot,” President Obama said. “There are two things that keep bringing me back here.  Number one is I really like the people.”

President Obama has visited Asheville multiple times since 2008. He even discussed his favorite restaurant in Asheville.

“(Another reason) is 12 Bones, which I will be stopping on the way back to the airport,” President Obama said.

The president followed up his call for the increase from $7.25 to $9 an hour in Tuesday night’s State of the Union address with his trip to Asheville, attempting to reach voters outside Washington on the plan

Canadian-based Linamar Corp. opened a former Volvo plant in Asheville that had gone dark and rehired some of its workers. Obama touted it as an example of America attracting jobs from overseas.

He says the key to reviving America’s economy is to bring more jobs to the United States, give Americans the skills they need to perform them and provide those workers with a decent living.

“There’s no magic bullet here, it’s just some common sense stuff. People still have to work hard,” he said, arguing that just a few structural changes could have an outsize impact. He said he needs Congress to help pass his initiatives.
