Pittsburgh Works Commends Legislators, Governor
For Making Pennsylvania More Competitive
The following statement should be attributed to Jeff Nobers, executive director of Pittsburgh Works Together, a business-organized labor-economic development alliance working to grow jobs and expand the industries that are the foundation of our economy, including energy, manufacturing, and construction:
We are grateful that Pennsylvania is continuing to take critical steps to make the state more competitive in attracting jobs for Commonwealth residents. Governor Wolf and legislators from both parties have worked together to develop a plan that will help create new family-sustaining jobs in industries ranging from biomedical research to natural gas production to agriculture.
The legislation passed by an overwhelming bi-partisan majority in both chambers and which the Governor has said he will sign, would create tax incentives for the creation of a new clean hydrogen production hub, to support semiconductor and biomedical manufacturing, and to support milk processing facilities in the state, among other industries.
These are the kinds of jobs that will provide opportunity for all Pennsylvania residents, whether in research labs, on construction sites, or on factory floors. We thank Gov. Wolf and the General Assembly for their leadership in creating new opportunities for Pennsylvania residents.
