Representative Bryan Barbin http://wesa.fm en PA Senator Sponsoring Tax Credit for Veteran Jobs http://wesa.fm/post/pa-senator-sponsoring-tax-credit-veteran-jobs <p>State Sen. Mike Stack (D-Philadelphia) is sponsoring a bill that would provide a $4,000 tax credit to small businesses that hire veterans.</p><p>“It’s a win/win because the employer will get a great employee in a veteran and be doing the right thing to hire one of our heroes and also get a tax credit,” Stack said. “So I think it’s job creation and it’s rewarding the folks that have fought for us.”</p><p>Stack notes the unemployment rate in Pennsylvania for veterans is 9.9 percent compared to the statewide unemployment rate of 7.8 percent.</p> Mon, 03 Jun 2013 07:30:00 +0000 Jessica Nath 10484 at http://wesa.fm
