Everyone wants to ensure the security of their family. Idaho families must not only survive but have the opportunity to prosper. In fact, we need jobs that allow our children and grandchildren to stay in Idaho and be economically secure.
An honest day's work deserves an honest day's pay. Hard-working Idahoans must be able to afford day-to-day expenses and to educate their kids. Idaho will only prosper if its people prosper.
We need to attract higher-paying career opportunities for our workforce and ensure that salaries are competitive with our neighbors.
We can grow Idaho businesses by allowing Idaho companies the first opportunity to bid on state contracts.
We can provide incentives to help workers laid off in the recession get retrained and learn new skills to compete for good jobs.
