Economy & Jobs
Jon has a common sense, made-in-Montana plan to strengthen the state's economy and create good-paying jobs for folks across the Big Sky Country.
Jon's #EmployMT plan will open new markets to Montana businesses, pave the way for innovation at our colleges and universities, invest in our state's workforce, and responsibly develop Montana's natural resources.
Another fundamental part of Jon's plan is cutting regulations to ensure Montana's businesses have access to capital so they can continue to grow and create jobs.
Jon is also fighting to strengthen our outdoor economy, which has been a huge area for job growth over the last decade and currently sustains more than 70,000 jobs throughout our state each year.
And, as part of his #Montennials initiative, Jon is pushing to improve economic prospect for Montana's young folks, so they can start their own careers in the Treasure State.
Additionally, Jon has hosted over a dozen Small Business Opportunity Workshops across the state to connect entrepreneurs with resources to start and grow their operations.
