Economic Growth and Workforce Development
Unleashing Arizonan Innovation and Growing Our Workforce
Right now, Arizona’s working families face ongoing economic uncertainties. Governor Hobbs knows what’s possible when leaders work together to improve the lives of those they represent. That’s why she will work with the legislature to put more money in pockets and provide meaningful relief for so many working families in Arizona.
Governor Hobbs will prioritize:
Lowering costs for families with children through state level child tax credits, sales tax exemptions for diapers, and a sales tax holiday for back to school shopping.
Helping Arizonans get back to work in good-paying jobs by creating more career and technical education opportunities and expanding child care assistance.
Protect the health and well-being of Arizona families with sales tax exemptions for over-the-counter medicines and feminine hygiene products.
By providing much-needed relief to Arizona families, we can also grow our economy and set our state up for long-term prosperity. When more Arizonans are able to afford school supplies, medications, and child care, as well as given the opportunity for training needed for a good-paying job, they become part of a healthier and more dependable workforce. And when more businesses are able to grow, they make our state more competitive and attractive to workers.
