State of North Dakota secondary Archives: on Jobs

Dustin Peyer: Support unions; raise minimum wage

We need to stand with our labor unions. Any workforce should have the right to unionize for better wages, safety standards, retirement, healthcare, and other things that create a more positive workforce. We plan on supporting bills that will strengthen the workforce, New Trade Policies so the Corporate America Invests in this country rather than shutting down here and moving abroad, we support of the minimum wage to $15 an hour.

Jack Dalrymple: Job growth from low taxes & regulations, not just oil

The national media contacts my office nearly every week asking the same question: "What are you guys doing out there anyhow?" I explain to them about our record of job creation and smart budgeting. But then they ask, "Isn't it all about the oil?" and I enjoy explaining to them that our unemployment rate, which is the lowest in the nation at 2.8%, is very low throughout the state including the Red River Valley which is about 260 miles from the nearest oil well.

For the last 12 years our successful strategies for job growth and economic development have begun with creating a positive business climate. That means a focus on low taxes, a reasonable regulatory climate, and the most responsive state government anywhere. In state government itself, we have found a model that has stood the test of time, which is to: fund our priorities responsibly; build strong reserves for the future; and provide tax relief whenever possible.

Dwight Grotberg: Redirect farm subsidies back into the marketplace

There have been questions about the farm subsidies I and farmers across this state have received. As your Senator, I will implement and support legislation that redirects our source of income back to the marketplace, where it belongs. This will, in turn, allow for more funds to be put into a reserve that can be tapped into for disasters and hard times.
