Creating Jobs and Turning Our Economy Around

 

While many states raised taxes and went deep into debt, and Washington descended into partisan bickering and gridlock, Gov. Nixon provided the tough leadership to help our state turn the corner. Gov. Nixon balanced the budget every year without raising taxes, protected our state’s perfect AAA credit rating, and brought Democrats and Republicans together to revive our state’s hard-hit auto industry.

While there’s still much work to be done, Gov. Nixon’s fiscally responsible leadership is clearly paying off for Missouri’s economy.

After Gov. Nixon brought Republicans and Democrats together to pass landmark legislation to support Missouri’s auto industry, Ford and General Motors announced plans to invest over $1.4 billion in Missouri, which will create over 3,000 new jobs and ensure that the cars of the future are built right here in the Show-Me State. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce ranked Missouri the 7th best state in the nation to do business, calling the Show-Me State a “leader” for our business-friendly tax and regulatory climate.

Gov. Nixon’s job-creation strategy has focused on:

  • Maintaining Missouri’s perfect AAA credit rating by balancing the budget without raising taxes;
  • Training Missouri students and workers for the high-demand jobs of the future;
  • Investing in science, technology and innovation;
  • Lowering taxes for small businesses and helping them access the capital they need to create jobs;
  • Expanding exports by helping Missouri businesses sell their goods overseas;
  • Aggressively recruiting new employers and helping existing businesses expand.

 


 

 

 

 

 

When Gov. Nixon took office in January 2009, our country was at the height of the worst economic meltdown in generations. While too many Missouri families continue to struggle to make ends meet, we’re turning the corner and moving in the right direction.  By providing strong leadership in these tough times and fighting every day for every Missouri job, Gov. Nixon is leading our state toward economic growth.

Gov. Nixon’s job-creation strategy has focused on:

  • Training Missouri workers for the high-demand jobs of the future;
  • Investing in science, technology and innovation;
  • Encouraging and incentivizing entrepreneurship;
  • Lowering taxes for small businesses and helping them access the capital they need to create jobs;
  • Aggressively recruiting new employers to Missouri, and helping existing businesses expand.

Gov. Nixon knows that for our economy to thrive, Missouri’s small businesses and entrepreneurs must be able to expand and hire new employees. This year, the Governor signed legislation to completely eliminate the franchise tax, saving Missouri businesses $80 million a year. He has also continued his efforts to ensure small business owners have access to the credit they need, most recently by launching an initiative to increase small business lending in the state by $269 million.

Gov. Nixon firmly believes that to thrive in the 21st Century economy, our workers must have the skills needed to compete and get ahead. That’s why Gov. Nixon has boosted funding for job training and launched initiatives like Training for Tomorrow and Compete Missouri, a strategic plan to streamline the state’s workforce training programs and align them with the needs of businesses in the state.  Gov. Nixon is also fighting to expand the A-plus Scholarship program so more low- and middle-income Missourians can attend community colleges tuition-free.

Gov. Nixon’s tireless focus on job creation is paying off.  After years of substantial losses, Missouri finished 2010 with a net gain of jobs. Revenues, personal income, and international exports are up, while unemployment claims are down. Gov. Nixon’s aggressive recruitment efforts have helped bring thousands of jobs throughout Missouri.

We’ve made great strides, but we have a long way to go. By fighting every day for every job, Gov. Nixon is leading us through historically difficult times and turning this economy around.
