Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama will talk about how he'll help Americans deal with shrinking wages, higher prices and lost jobs during his upcoming campaign stops in Michigan.

Obama plans to hold events Wednesday in southeast Michigan's Macomb County and Grand Rapids. His campaign manager says the Illinois senator will talk about how the policies of President Bush have hurt workers and what he'd do differently if elected.

Michigan's 7.2 percent unemployment rate is the nation's highest.

Obama's visit to Michigan comes a year after he made his first campaign stop here. Campaign manager David Plouffe says Obama, who took his name of Michigan's presidential primary ballot, will be courting this critical swing state as the general election nears.
