Guinta For Congress - Job Training and Workforce Development focus of Middle-Class Tour Stop 

Yesterday, Team Guinta traveled to the Lakes Region Community College in Laconia to continue its Middle-Class Economic Recovery Tour.

These schools can be enormously helpful to students looking for cost effective ways to develop the tools needed to learn a trade and begin a career. Additionally, this stop highlighted the importance of job training and the role it can play when individuals become structurally unemployed after months and years of looking for work.

Frank Guinta released the following statement:

“For many, the effects of the Great Recession linger on with unemployment and underemployment remaining historically high. I am confident though, that our best economic days lie ahead. In order to get there, our workforce needs to be educated and ready to adapt to the needs of the 21st century. Job training and workforce development programs can be the bridge over which we cross into a prosperous, more competitive future. We must place our trust in the ingenuity and entrepreneurial spirit of the American worker, not a Washington bureaucrat.”

Help Wanted: One in six men aged 25-54 not working

Obamacare cost shockwave hits local schools equals bad news for Congressional Democrats
The Calvert County, Maryland school system has a problem – Obamacare. It faces a 13.7 percent increase in health care costs next year, as previously uncovered substitute teachers get covered and the overall policy costs are higher.

Here's a hint: They were not Baby Boomer retirees.

Wolf: "Although we cannot control how this administration pursues, or fails to pursue, those terrorists responsible for the deaths of four Americans, we can ensure that the American people learn the truth about what happened and which officials should be held accountable."

Crudele: It's time to investigate Census' faulty counting
Inspector General report: Census survey supervisors "do not consistently use the tools available to them for detecting and preventing survey data falsification."

NH Senate President Statement on State Employment Numbers

New Hampshire Senate

News Release

Concord, NH – Senate President Chuck Morse, R-Salem, today issued the following statement on the state’s improving employment picture:

“Over the last year more than 8,600 of our residents have found work here in New Hampshire.  This is welcome news not only for our economy but more importantly for the hardworking men and women of this state who are now able to better provide for themselves and their families.

“Yet while our state’s economic indicators remain stronger than national averages, there is still more to be done to encourage economic growth, job creation, and a welcoming business climate.  In order to regain our standing as the strongest economy in the Northeast, and put even more of our friends and neighbors back to work, the Senate remains committed to controlling state spending and returning to the sound fiscal policies that made New Hampshire the best state in the region to start, relocate, or grow a successful business.”
