About

Like you, the diverse group of people that support job creation in Pennsylvania – “Citizens to Protect PA Jobs” – desire a quality of life for Pennsylvanians that can only be fully realized when job creation and economic growth are allowed to flourish.

Because when businesses add jobs, people and communities prosper – that means a better quality of life for you and your family!

Top Issues

Workforce Development

Pennsylvania has a workforce problem - a growing skills gap that is making it difficult for employers to find qualified job candidates to fill open positions. We're fighting to close this gap by working with businesses, educators, students and their families to help build the skilled workforce of tomorrow.

Responsible State Spending

Government should operate within its means: evaluating the effectiveness of current programs; weeding out waste, fraud and abuse in spending; and investing wisely in worthy state-run programs that directly benefit taxpayers.

Stop New Energy Taxes

Our natural gas industry holds the promise of economic growth and job creation. Additional taxes hinder this opportunity and drive companies to states with friendlier tax climates that share our resources. We're fighting against proposed new taxes on the industry that would pay for more state spending.
