Governor Jared Polis Celebrates Labor Day and Thanks the Strong Colorado Workforce
“As we safely celebrate Labor Day, I want to thank Colorado’s workers for all they contribute to making our state a place where people and businesses can thrive. Colorado is home to one of the strongest workforces in the country thanks to the high skill level, excellent education opportunities, and hard-working spirit of all the Coloradans. As a business person, it is exciting to see Colorado businesses start up and grow, especially our employee-owned businesses,” said Governor Polis. “I am committed to further growing our economy, creating more good-paying jobs, and expanding access to high-quality training and education so that every Colorado worker can thrive.”
Governor Polis has supported employee-owned businesses and expanded workforce training and development opportunities at a lower cost to ensure every Coloradan can access the resources they need to grow and thrive. In June 2021, Governor Polis signed a new law providing annual tax credits to fund professional service costs of conversion to employee ownership. The program makes employee ownership conversions more accessible for businesses throughout Colorado.
