Election is Over – Let’s Create Jobs!


 

Jobs

Job Creation

The election results are in and it has been almost a week since it became clear that the public wants job creation to be a top priority.  It appears the message was heard by the White House as exhibited by the White House leveraging the Monster.com community to communicate with job seekers using Monster’s Facebook Page.  More on this action by White House can be viewed at http://tinyurl.com/2gxgsf8Although it is admirable the Administration is seeking the comments of the unemployed the facts indicate that successful job creation must focus on developing an environment conducive to entrepreneurship.

One fact emerges with clarity. Start-ups and young companies dominate net job creation in the United States – and have done so for the last 30 years as stated by The Kauffman Foundation in press release in September 2010 http://tinyurl.com/3433xpf.   If that is the case then why, has so little been done to encourage and support current and would be entrepreneurs?

In all fairness, perhaps initiatives have been implemented that are not immediately clear. Let me offer an apology in advance if that is the case. However, I suspect that is not the case. Too many years have come and gone with entrepreneurs struggling for the assistance and help needed to facilitate and transform their ideas into viable businesses. The current crop of politicians along with the newly elected could help job creation by quickly ( I know –  what am I saying?) creating legislation that is favorable to business, current and future.

If the preponderance of jobs are created by start-ups and emerging companies common sense dictates that we provide the requisite resources for entrepreneurs to succeed.
