Today’s news that another 125,000 working men and women lost their jobs last month – their way to pay their household bills – reminds all of us that we need leaders in Washington committed to creating and protecting good paying, permanent jobs. Yesterday’s news that Sallie Mae will be relocating its corporate headquarters to Delaware proves that when government, businesses, and our broader community come together, we can turn this tide. We need more help from Washington – help for small businesses, manufacturing, and innovation-based businesses – if we are to help businesses to create more jobs in Delaware and beyond over the long term.
