Great Barrington, MA (PRWEB) September 13, 2011
Jane Iredale, founder and CEO of Iredale Mineral Cosmetics, Ltd. was invited by President Obama to participate at an event Monday morning at the White House Rose Garden.
Ms. Iredale was part of a group of small business owners from across the country invited to hear how the President’s proposed new legislation, The American Jobs Act, may help small businesses create new jobs and new opportunities for American workers across the country.
Jane Iredale noted, “For seventeen years, reinvesting in our business has been critical in order to maximize the opportunities in the beauty industry at home and abroad. I feel a responsibility, especially now, to continue that investment both in our loyal employees and the people who partner with us in business. This is not the time to be faint-hearted.”
Iredale Mineral Cosmetics’ global headquarters is located in Great Barrington, Massachusetts. The company is widely recognized as a global leader in the mineral cosmetics industry, currently distributing products in over forty countries.
The American Jobs Act has many initiatives long called for by the business community including: an across the board reduction in the payroll tax, tax credits for hiring out of work veterans, and regulatory reforms to promote business access to capital for investment.
