Will Visit With Local Businesses To Talk About Ways To Advance Growth & Hiring and To Hear Their Ideas & Concerns
Long Branch, NJ — Touting the economic benefits small businesses bring to communities and the need to support small businesses in difficult economic conditions, Congressman Frank Pallone, Jr. Friday will speak with small business owners about their economic situation and what Congress is doing to help bring our small businesses back to the same productivity and staffing levels as before the recession. Pallone also wants to get continued input from business owners on their needs and their ideas.
Pallone will be accompanied by Alfred J. Titone, district director for the U.S. Small Business Administration's New Jersey district office, who will provide direct guidance and assistance in helping businesses take advantage of federal programs.
Pallone is supportive of provisions in the American Jobs Act, recently introduced by President Obama, that will help small businesses grow again. These provisions include cutting payroll taxes in half and tax credits for businesses that hire unemployed workers who’ve been unemployed for 6 months and tax credits for hiring unemployed and service disabled veterans. Giving small business owners greater access to capital, helping them hire new workers and helping businesses expand and purchase machinery and other equipment will help them grow and bring in customers again.
