Job Creators Network Applauds Trump Executive Order on Payroll Tax Suspension

Washington, DC (August 8, 2020) — Today, President Trump announced that he is signing several executive orders to stimulate the economy, including a payroll tax suspension for those earning less than $100,000 annually.

Alfredo Ortiz, President and CEO of the Job Creators Network (JCN), released the following statement:

“JCN applauds President Trump’s payroll tax suspension, which will help hard working ordinary Americans, small businesses and the self-employed (especially “gig workers”). Since March, JCN has been advocating for payroll tax relief to allow Americans to immediately keep more of their own hard earned money, including running full-page ads in the Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and the New York Post. President Trump is showing bold leadership with today’s executive orders and strengthening his leverage with congressional Democrats on a stimulus bill. President Trump is taking decisive action to accelerate America’s economic recovery. Now it’s time for the Democrats to stop playing politics and work in good faith for a broader stimulus deal, including a renewal of the Paycheck Protection Program.”
