The White House Business Council / Social Security

In mid-October, The White House will re-launch the jobs and economy section of the website. This section of the website will include an interactive map of the U.S. that will profile success stories and illustrate how they will directly benefit from the American Jobs Act. We are profiling two success stories from each state, and we need help in identifying candidates for the state of California.

They are always looking to highlight businesses that are expanding, investing in new ideas and investing in their communities by adding jobs and growing capacity. The best candidates are companies who are investing in their workers, hiring back those they had to lay off, using tax credits to offer health insurance and expanding opportunities through job training and education. The business must be under 500 employees and must be hiring on more people in the foreseeable future.

These stories may be highlighted on government websites (WhiteHouse.gov), in speeches by senior Administration officials and in reports to national leaders or the media.

8) Quote from CEO on why he/she is investing in their company/betting on their continued growth and success:

9) Company Story: 200 to 250 word short story. These stories should be embedded in the success of the CEO. We want individuals across the country to relate to business owners like yourself, but also understand why you are being highlighted over other businesses:

Please let me know if you are interested and meet the requirements. On Friday, I spoke to a group of people on small business attitudes on retirement benefits. I indicated the problems, but they asked me an interesting question about how small business felt about Social Security. Please let me know your thoughts.
