Our main point with the study is that we need more higher wage jobs and a larger tax base to support public services. More businesses, whether they are small, medium or large, that provide family wage jobs are needed. More jobs = more taxpayers = more tax revenue for schools and other services. One interesting fact in our report is that there would be $86.6 million available each year for Multnomah County schools each year if Portland-metro had the same per capita income as Seattle-metro. That's a lot of teachers, books and school improvements. See more at www.valueofjobs.com.
