Small Business Workforce The Focus Of Senate Field Hearing In Manchester

Aug 31, 2015


New Hampshire’s U.S. Senators are holding a field hearing today on the state’s small business workforce.

Jeanne Shaheen and Kelly Ayotte will host a roundtable discussion with a group of business and educational leaders this morning at Manchester Community College.

Ayotte says the discussion will focus on how to help workers obtain skills to fill high-paying jobs, among other topics. "On the regulatory front, make it easier for our small businesses to export - Sen. Shaheen and I have worked on legislation together to break down barriers for exports for small businesses," Ayotte says. "And [we hope to] hear from them about how we can better help create a climate for small businesses to thrive and grow in New Hampshire." 

Shaheen and Ayotte are members of the Senate Small Business and Entrepreneurship Committee.
