Our Political Action Committee commends the efforts of Governors Scott Walker of Wisconsin and Chris Christie of New Jersey for their stands against collective bargaining, viewing their actions as exemplary in addressing state fiscal challenges. We believe that labor unions contribute to the increased cost of doing business in the United States, which in turn affects the country’s ability to compete globally, particularly in manufacturing.

Our stance is that to revitalize the U.S. as a competitive base for manufacturing jobs, labor unions should be reformed or minimized. We propose offering vigorous tax incentives for companies to encourage hiring and retaining workers domestically. This approach is aimed at counteracting the loss of jobs to countries with lower wage structures, such as Hong Kong, China, India, Brazil, Mexico, Indonesia, and Egypt.

We emphasize the importance of efficient economic management in maintaining low unemployment levels, ideally below 3 or 4 percent. Drawing on historical examples, such as the period between 1995 and 1999 under the leadership of Newt Gingrich in the U.S. House of Representatives, we argue that such low unemployment rates are achievable.

Our goal is to create an economic environment where businesses can thrive without the constraints often imposed by labor unions, thus fostering job creation and ensuring the United States remains a competitive player in the global market. We believe that with the right policies and incentives, the U.S. can successfully bring back jobs and maintain a robust, dynamic economy.
