Giannoulias also introduced a program to recruit new teachers with a focus on math and science.
Also Sunday, one of Giannoulias' opponents in the Senate race, Cheryle Jackson, put forth a jobs plan.
Jackson says she wants to create incentives for job creation among small businesses and to redirect tax breaks away from multi-national corporations and toward firms committed to local job creation in the United States.
Jackson says her experience as head of the Urban League gives her insight into helping local economies recover from economic hardship.
In addition to Giannoulias, Jackson faces fellow candidates Jacob Meister, David Hoffman and Robert Marshall in the Democratic primary.
