It’s the economy—that’s what is underlying all political issues facing the country, and foremost on the minds of those in the political realm. NC Senator Kay Hagan has been working to pass her a bill that would do its own work to reward those who create jobs and end rewards for those who outsource US jobs off shore, “Any company today, we want to be sure that, if they send jobs overseas, they cannot take a business deduction for expenses for moving for closing a plant, a facility and moving jobs overseas. But on the reverse, there’s definitely a carrot out there, with a 20% tax credit that if you bring these jobs back, there’s incentive to do that.” Senator Hagan, who has been traveling across the state on her North Carolina Back to Work Jobs Tour for months, including a stop in Boone in April, will host a Jobs Summit tomorrow with the state's top leaders in business, economic development and education to discuss current and future job creation efforts. Hagan's jobs tour has taken her to small businesses, manufacturing plants, workforce development offices and community colleges around the state - as well as online for a Twitter town hall with constituents - to gather ideas and initiatives that will put North Carolina back to work.
The North Carolina Back to Work Jobs Summit, the 17th stop on Hagan's jobs tour, will offer the most comprehensive look yet at North Carolina's employment situation and will focus on some of the most prominent themes of Hagan's jobs tour, including workforce development, retaining existing industry, and growing industries of the future. The summit will be moderated by North Carolina Rural Economic Development Center President Billy Ray Hall.
