A variety of troubling proposals that threaten to impede an already slow economic recovery remain up for debate as the Massachusetts Legislature prepares to end formal sessions on July 31.
AIM has consistently opposed proposals that would place costs, burdens and challenges on ability of employers to retain and grow jobs in the commonwealth. Cost burdens are especially dangerous at a time when confidence among Massachusetts employers took its second-largest one-month drop in history during June.
Three pending bills raise particular concern:
Not exactly the sort of bills you would include as part of an effective strategy to encourage job creators to invest in Massachusetts. These proposals would, in fact, cause just the sort of bureaucratic tangle that discourages employers from adding the jobs that thousands of unemployed residents of the commonwealth so desperately need.
Let’s not give Massachusetts employers and (companies seeking to locate and invest in here) a reason to leave or say “No thanks” to Massachusetts. Our collective efforts must be focused on job creation public policy for the residents of the commonwealth.
