Job creation is the key to growth.
With Louisiana experiencing historic success in economic development (e.g. DXC Technology and creation of 2,000+ jobs), now is the time to recommit to smart economic development. We must also continue to protect small, effective state incentives such as the Digital Media, Angel Investor and Quality Jobs programs that help make Louisiana more competitive with other states.
These incentives are also instrumental in driving diversification which is essential to long-term economic development. A commitment to fostering high-wage, high-demand STEM jobs will also support demand-driven workforce development.
