- Maricopa County to Invest $7 Million in High-Paying Jobs | Legal News | News Ticker
Not only does everyone in Arizona understand that the state’s economy is struggling, but people everywhere in the state are living it as well. One of the main reasons that so many people find themselves in financial turmoil is because the jobs market is still at levels where no one would expect the state to turn around as a whole anytime soon in an economic sense. Therefore, some entities are taking action, and one such step was announced yesterday by the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors. The county is going to invest $7 million in attracting businesses to the county that offer high-paying jobs to employees.
Specifically, this step will allow companies that want to put operations here to apply for job training and infrastructure funds as long as that company agrees to pay its workers at least 125 percent of the county’s median income, which currently sits at $31,000.00 per year. The funds will come from interest income that’s being generated by the county’s cash reserves in its general fund, and it’s hope that such an investment will prompt businesses of different types to move into the county and start hiring.

The move comes on the heels of reports that Arizona bankruptcy filings are about to set a record in terms of number of cases filed in 2010 after the previous record was set just last year. In addition, marriage rates and birth rates are on the decline but the rate of poverty is on the rise. These statistics always spell trouble both in the short-term and the long-term, and most people agree that an economy cannot gain a strong foothold of stability until the jobs market bottoms out and begins to move in a positive direction.

Liz was great
I tried a few previous law firms and none would take my car accident case with confidence they could get my anything. Phillips law group took my case and although it took around 4 years to get this case settled as I was in treatment, they never let up with insurance adjusters and they got me as much money as possible. They worked hard for me and advocated for me. Shoutout to key individuals who worked my case nonstop of the years, Robert Ross & Jasmine, you are AMAZING!
Juan Roque has been integral with my legal needs. Communication has been easy. He conveys information I can easily understand without a lot of "Legal Fluff" jargon. I will certainly do business with Phillips Legal team again and refer them to my friends and family.
I would have no hesitation at all recommending Phillips Law Group. In particular, Juan Roque has impressed me with his professionalism, his integrity and his heart for the community!
I just wanted to thank Phillips law Group and Vanessa Rodriguez for all the help that she did for my daughter’s case. She was involved in her first accident and she needed the help to deal with these adjusters. Thank you again.
Great experience! Took care of pretty much everything, and I always felt like I want in good hands. Caroline Fa. was also a great help with everything. She always returned my calls and I never felt unheard. Even after my case she would still help me with my insurance documents.
Liz Gonzales was great!!!!
Two family members were in a bad wreck a couple of years ago, and as a result called Phillips Law to represent them. Montana Thompson was the attorney assigned to the case with the help of Nemo Farr as legal assistant. Mr. Thompson litigated a very generous settlement for both my stepdaughter and her son. Because my grandson is a minor, I decided to act as conservator for him to ensure the settlement was safe and secure. Montana helped with that process, but it was Nemo who went way above and beyond the call in finding a financial institution to use for the restricted account. There were some glitches in that process but Nemo helped navigate them with a calm expertise which belies his age. I would consider them both great representatives of the level of commitment to their clients and assets to their firm.
Phillips Law Group does so much for the community!!! I especially enjoy seeing Juan Roque out there. This gentle giant always has a smile on his face and is a part of a caring and giving team.
Phillips law group has an amazing staff and i recommend them to everyone.
