Robert Bentley on Jobs

 


Take pride in products stamped "Made In Alabama"

Our state is making great progress. Jobs are coming. We are cutting costs and living within our means--all without raising taxes. Unemployment in Alabama is down to the lowest level in four years. Over 26,000, new, future jobs have been recruited to Alabama in the last two years. Industries from all over the world are choosing to make their home in our state and have invested more than $6 dollars in Alabama in 2012.

From the state's largest cities to the smallest towns, nothing is more important to me than putting people back to work. Because of my steadfast commitment to recruiting jobs for the people of this state, Whether it is 50 jobs in a small town or 1000 jobs in a large city, every job matters to me and especially to that person who will go back to work.

They are the men and women who make up Alabama's greatest economic asset--and that's our workers. I'm proud of our workers, and we should all take pride that the products rolling off the assembly line are stamped "Made In Alabama."

As new governor, job creation is my first priority

My highest priority for Alabama is creating jobs. Stimulating our economy and job creation for the people of Alabama is, and will remain, the focal point of my administration.

I am creating an Office of Small Business Development. We will continue to aggressively pursue businesses that bring new jobs to our state. That means providing work force training and resources to support companies. Under the Full-Employment Act business will be given a one-time tax credit for each new job they create.
