As a small business owner I am often asked what I think must happen to get the US economy on track. My answer is always “JOBS“. People must be put back into the work force and off of the unemployment payroll. A person with a “JOB” feels confident about spending money for both necessities and discretionary spending.
In the coming years our biggest priority should be job creation. No President, Judge, or Politician should create any legislation that impacts businesses in the ability to hire people. Our President and Congress should have one thing on their collective minds…does this law affect businesses in a negative way, thus limiting their ability to hire?
The upcoming election is just around the corner. When I go to the polls in November my decision will be based on who I think will aid me in job creation in my small business. Who is it that understands the link between small business, job creation and prosperity? Who is it that will put America back to work? When we have jobs we feel good about ourselves and our leaders.
It isn’t about the 99% or the 1%…it’s about people…working and creating products that in turn creates jobs. In the next century the US will be fighting for positioning in the world economy because we are now a global market. We are in a race to see who captures those jobs. Our leaders need to understand this and work toward the common goal of attracting jobs.
