“Hi, this is Senator Tim Carpenter and I’m joining my fellow Democrats in recognizing National Entrepreneurs’ Day. 

“We know that America’s economic strength lies in our ability to support entrepreneurs and start-up businesses. Given the trend toward a 21st century knowledge-based economy, Wisconsin has some catching up to do.

“Since Gov. Walker took office, Wisconsin has trailed the country in job creation and ranks dead-last for start-ups. Economic insecurity and student loan debt are paralyzing our young entrepreneurs. Our infrastructure is crumbling and small businesses are finding that the system is rigged against them in favor of wealthy corporations.

“Rather than sending billions of our tax dollars to subsidize a foreign corporation like Foxconn, Democrats want to support home-grown companies and encourage Wisconsin entrepreneurs. In honor of National Entrepreneurs Day, let’s reignite our economy and re-invest in American entrepreneurs. Thank you.”
