WASHINGTON, Sept. 14 (UPI) -- The White House said Saturday U.S. President Barack Obama will speak next week about economic growth following the worst recession since the Great Depression.

In a statement, the White House said the president will speak Monday in the Rose Garden to discuss "the progress we have made to grow the economy and create 7.5 million private sector jobs, and highlight the work we still need to do to strengthen the middle class and those fighting to get into it."

The statement said Obama will "highlight his better bargain for the middle class, and warn against more self-inflicted wounds from Washington."

The president will be joined at the White House by people the statement said "have benefited from his economic recovery proposals over the last five years including small business owners, construction workers, homeowners, consumers and tax cut recipients."
