As many of you may know through personal experience or by association, job security is a major issue both on the national level and within District 10. Although a large amount of constituents within District 10 are employed, many are not secure in their employment status. On a daily basis, many constituents go to their places of employment wondering if it will be their last day. There are others within the district that are seeking gainful employment. The communities within District 10 are home to many small businesses that also need our support. As with the loss of individual jobs, the small businesses are also feeling the impact. Some have had to reduce their workforce, while others have had to close their doors. The securing of jobs, stabilization of employment and support of the small businesses within our communities are priorities of District 10.
