Josiah Bartlett Center - The State's Job Problem Can't be Fixed by Changing One Thing 

Weekly Update from the
Josiah Bartlett Center


Keeping you up to date on our latest research
on the issues impacting New Hampshire

 
 

The biggest problem with the anemic job growth New Hampshire has been saddled with for the last decade is not the lack of jobs but the forlorn hope of policymakers that there is one silver bullet that will fix everything.

It used to be true (and is no longer) that New Hampshire grew faster than most states when the economy was strong and came back from recessions before other states and more aggressively than other states. The explosive growth of jobs in the 1970s, the 1980s, and at least to some extent the 1990s was something we took for granted and defined what we perceived as the dynamic economic character of the state.

In the 1980s, New Hampshire’s economy went through an explosive boom cycle. At our job creation peak there were more jobs than available workers – we were the North Dakota of our time. For example, from 1983 to 1989 the number of jobs in New Hampshire increased by 28% in just six years....Click here to keep reading

Franklin Center - Big Labor bosses and so-called “solidarity”  

Big Labor bosses and so-called "solidarity"

Did you know that almost 500 union officers and employees made more than a quarter of a million dollars last year? For many Americans, such payouts fly in the face of the “solidarity” rhetoric that union leaders frequently use. That's why Watchdog.org reporters have been hard at work owning this story and asking the tough questions about Big Labor's salaries.

How much do labor union leaders in your state make?

 

A Note >From Our President

Dear Reader,

At their best, labor unions can be a strong advocate for employees, but often union leaders stop effectively representing their members and focus rather on personal gain. Watchdog.org recently found that hundreds of union officers and employees made more than a quarter of a million dollars last year - and all of it came straight out of the pockets of hardworking Americans.

Many employees have little choice in how their dues are spent, so we want to make sure they're informed about the inner workings of the labor groups that are supposed to represent their interests. Holding government accountable means holding influential interest groups accountable too.

Best regards,

Jason Stverak
President, Franklin Center for Government & Public Integrity
