Carly Fiorina on Jobs

Fiorina blames limited worker skills and government interference for high unemployment, and seeks to ameliorate the problem through jobs training, deregulation on businesses, and tax rate reductions.

QUESTIONER: “Next question. People can't get enough of hearing about job creation, so what's the best way to improve unemployment to increase the hiring of more quality jobs?”

CARLY FIORINA: “Well I think first of all we have to recognize that while we talk a lot about rebuilding America, which is true, we also have to retrain America. We can't give up on workers, who at 45 or 50 or 55 or 60, lose their job through no fault of their own. We need to retrain them so that they are qualified for the 21st century jobs. I go into too many towns where I see an organization – a manufacturing facility, perhaps – with “Help Wanted” signs up, and unemployment that is too high. So we have to retrain America even as we must make sure that every one of our children gets a quality education. We have to, as I said in my speech, we have to rebuild Main Street.
It's a shocking statistic that we are now destroying more businesses than we are creating. And when we are destroying small business, we are destroying jobs for the middle class. Two-thirds of new jobs are created by small business. Half the people are employed by small businesses. So we have to do everything in our power to compete for every job by simplifying our tax code, lowering our rates, vastly simplifying our regulatory structure, educating our children, retraining our workers, and rebuilding small businesses in the United States.”
