"Why Supporting the Chamber is Important Public employees do pay income taxes, but their earnings are paid entirely by taxes. Stated simply, entrepreneurs and private employment create the most valuable jobs in our society.

While government jobs are important, as far as payback to society is concerned, and to retain a sustainable, self-sufficient community, they just don't compare to the private secIf you are a business owner, the tor. answer is simple: the chamber is the only organization that day in and day When a private sector job is created, out speaks up for business before leg- society makes money.

Such businesses are true entrepreneurs - they risk their money and time hoping to build a successful business using Our state is in the midst of tough their skills and hard work. economic factors - Stagnant Growth in the Job Market; Jobs relocating It takes an act of courage to take a overseas; Higher Taxes on business risk relying on only on your own skill and less Government support. set and work ethic.

If, however, you are not an owner, the answer does not appear as straightforward but the benefits to you are just as important - jobs and taxes.

More than half of the Region's jobs correlate in the non-private sector. The Chamber is the advocate for the entrepreneur and other private business. These are the jobs that create jobs that pay excise and income taxes which, of course, support the payment of wages for public employees.

And remember, the Chamber's goals are to assist these individuals and to make sure that good jobs are created, and preserved, on the North Shore.
