GOP Failing On Wisconsin Jobs
Instead of putting more Wisconsinites to work, Wisconsin Republicans have prioritized business tax credits for corporations that ship jobs overseas.
MADISON – For the 20th straight quarter, Wisconsin Republican’s failed agenda has left Wisconsin trailing the national average in private sector job growth. Over 70% of new jobs in Wisconsin are created by small businesses, yet the Republican-led legislature refuses to make the proper investments that would create jobs and boost Wisconsin’s economy.
Instead of putting more Wisconsinites to work, Wisconsin Republicans have prioritized business tax credits for corporations that ship jobs overseas, given a $27 million tax break to the eleven richest Wisconsinites, and have treated Wisconites’ tax dollars like their own personal piggy bank.
Democratic legislators are offering legislation that will make sure entrepreneurs and small business owners have the support and resources they need to succeed and create jobs. The agenda includes properly allocating small business tax credits, expanding access to broadband, and improving Wisconsin’s infrastructure.
“Democrats are offering real solutions that will create jobs, expand the middle class, and lift our economy up. We need to encourage people to start their own companies by providing the necessary resources, and invest in those small businesses that are trying to expand and hire more employees. Investing in our state and Wisconsinites is how we improve our economy, not special handouts for just a lucky few,” Laning concluded.
