Jobs and the Economy

Kathy Harrington knows jobs are what North Carolina needs the most. The pro-growth, business friendly policies - lower taxes, reduced regulations and tort reforms - she and her colleagues delivered over the past seven years have made North Carolina’s economy one of the fastest growing in the nation. 

Since 2011, North Carolina’s unemployment has been cut in half, the economy has added more than 500,000 new jobs, and in 2017 Forbes Magazine ranked North Carolina the #1 state to do business.
