Millionaire tax will put Massachusetts back on track
Boston Globe - 06/06/2017
As CEO of a Boston-based technology company and as a professor who studies the Massachusetts economy, we know that our Commonwealth’s greatest strength is that we have the best educated workforce in America. However, our ability to grow is severely limited because we still have fewer educated workers than we need. Recent studies of the state’s economic growth predict a significant slowdown in the coming years due to shortages of skilled workers. Further, getting the workers we do have to work and back home is increasingly difficult. Our roads are in poor condition, our decades-old trains break frequently, and the overall transportation system is failing to meet our needs.
