Post Crescent: Letters: Feingold works to create jobs and incentives

There is one candidate for U.S. Senate that is truly serious about keeping Americans working and to getting jobs for the unemployed or underemployed. That candidate is Russ Feingold. He had a track record of doing this over and over again.

The latest example is his support for the HIRE Act of 2010. The act gives employers two tax breaks for hiring workers through the end of the year. One of the tax breaks is that for each worker retained for at least a year, businesses may claim an additional general business tax credit, up to $1,000 per worker, when they file their 2011 income tax returns.
