THIS WEEK’S BUSINESS PRESS POLL QUESTION
Log onto the Las Vegas Business Press Web site and let us hear your opinion on this week’s question.
One proposal in President Barack Obama’s $3.8 trillion budget calls for giving companies a $5,000 tax credit for every worker they hire in 2010. Although the proposal is gathering some bipartisan support, critics argue that the tax credit won’t help reduce unemployment because businesses won’t hire any workers until they’re actually needed.
Would your company be willing to add employees this year if the tax credit plan is adopted?
