To rebuild the middle class, we need new ideas to create jobs that pay and policies that support our manufacturing and new growth industries. We must make new investments in 21st century manufacturing and refocus our economic development dollars and strategies. The commonwealth can help set the table for robust private sector growth to create and retain good jobs while strengthening the middle class.
The administration is partnering with the private sector to make smart investments that will create jobs. We are working to improve the business climate in Pennsylvania by reforming the tax system including ending the Capital Stock and Franchise Tax. We are also working with our colleges and universities to connect learning and training to employers.
