The White House's guest list for President Obama's address to a joint session of Congress Thursday is filled with representatives from business, labor and Democratic circles.

Guests sitting with first lady Michelle Obama include business owners big and small, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka, Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley (D) and a pair of U.S. mayors.

The list of 24 guests includes General Electric CEO Jeffrey Immelt, American Express CEO Kenneth Chenault, Cincinnati Mayor Mark Mallory, and Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa.

Small-business owners invited include Philip Maung, owner of a sushi business, Albert Green, CEO of Kent Displays, which the White House describes as "a rapidly expanding small business in Kent, Ohio," and Jan Heister, president of Premier Tooling and Manufacturing.

Some of the guests are also Americans in danger of losing their jobs because of budget cuts. Nicole Gentile, a third-grade teacher in Cleveland, "is at risk of being laid off given the district’s budget situation," according to the White House.

Earlier Thursday, House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) released his list of guests who will sit in the House press gallery for the speech. Boehner invited 13 industry representatives who face regulatory burdens as a way of highlighting the obstacles some Americans face in finding a job or job creation.
