Congress has recessed until after Labor Day and Members will be spending the next month in their home states and districts. Here are some of the companies that have created more – and better – jobs since Congress last renewed GSP:
- WorldFinds in Westmont, Illinois: After paying $55,000 in extra taxes during expiration, GSP renewal allowed WorldFinds to hire one full-time employee and another part-time worker – a big increase for a small business with a staff of (now) nine.
- Burris Company in Greeley, Colorado: After paying $3.2 million in extra taxes during expiration, GSP renewal allowed Burris to invest in its domestic manufacturing, leading to new, good paying jobs in Colorado.
- PolySource in Independence, Missouri: After paying $640,000 in extra taxes during expiration, GSP renewal allowed PolySource to hire five new workers, increasing overall employment from 11 workers to 16 workers.
