Portman Offers Amendment Incentivizing Employers to Hire Long-Term Unemployed Americans

"Nearly 4 million Americans are struggling to find work in this weak economy," Portman stated. "We should make it a top priority to connect those Americans with a job, and to create good tax policy that encourages job creation and hiring."
Portman is the author of the bipartisan unemployment insurance agreement that would extend unemployment insurance for long-term unemployed Americans. Portman played a key role in ensuring the bill is fully paid for, that it is short-term, and that it includes reforms to the broken program that's failing to connect Americans with jobs.
