SMALL BUSINESS COMMUNITY HOPEFUL RIGHT TO WORK WILL COME TO NEW HAMPSHIRE IN 2017
CONCORD (January 11, 2017): In response to the Senate
Commerce Committee passing Senate Bill 11 today, the following statement may be
attributed to the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) New
Hampshire state director, Bruce Berke:
Small business owners strive to attract the most qualified
of workers, including those that do not wish to be forced into having to
pay union dues. When New Hampshire finally becomes a right to work state, the
small business community will have the ability to compete with larger
employers. This issue has been a priority for our members for years and it
certainly looks like 2017’s legislative session is off to an ambitious start.
New Hampshire becoming the first right to work state in
the northeast would no doubt make it one of the most attractive states’s in the
region to do business. It would increase our ability to attract new
businesses as well as empower existing businesses to hire additional employees.
