America’s workers are the backbone of our economy.
- I support paying full-time workers a living wage with overtime benefits.
- I support paycheck fairness.
- I oppose “Right-to-Work” laws that hurt American workers.
It should not take a literal Act of Congress to guarantee people who work full-time have enough money to pay for food, shelter. It is past time we changed Federal Minimum Wage laws so it adjusts automatically with inflation and guarantees single parents who work full time can support themselves and a child without relying on taxpayer-funded assistance programs or needing to work two or three full time jobs.
I support a minimum wage that is a living wage, based on the poverty level for a household of two that adjusts with inflation¹, a measure that is pro-worker and pro-employment².
I support regulations that make guarantee workers with incomes in the bottom 40% of all US wage earners receive overtime pay when they work more than 40 hours a week.
I support the Paycheck Fairness Act that seeks to address the gender pay gap and other pay fairness issues.
I oppose “Right to Work” laws which favor employers over employees, weaken worker wages and weaken the ability of workers to organize³.
Our Congresswoman does not support living wage or worker protection laws
