Statement: The key to the resolution of the budget crisis is jobs. More jobs are created by increased demand for products and services. Economically sustainable growth is a delicate balance between industry incentives, training, education, mobilization of the workforce and government regulations.
Understanding the industry perspective is essential to guiding the expansion and growth of demand, jobs and business opportunities. Buying goods and services locally, when practical, enhances the local economy and business efficiency. The preservation of worker’s rights, civil rights, healthcare privacy and environmental protection are essential to our continued pursuit of happiness while living in a thriving, sustainable lifestyle.
