Strengthening Our Economy

In the pursuit of a more equitable and prosperous future, my economic policy platform is dedicated to addressing the systemic challenges that have hindered the working class's ability to achieve upward mobility. 

The harsh reality that 75% of working class Americans are trapped in a cycle of living paycheck to paycheck underscores the critical need for transformative change. 

In Congress, I will work to break down the barriers to economic equality and ensure that every American can thrive.

Ensuring Fair Wages for All

Congress must secure a fair living wage for every American worker. When elected, I will work to establish a $15 minimum wage, adjusted for inflation. This step is fundamental in guaranteeing that work in America is rightfully rewarded, allowing individuals and families to not just survive, but prosper.

Protecting Workers' Rights

All workers should be able to join a union without interference from their bosses. The National Labor Relations Act requires urgent modernization and expansion to safeguard the rights of every working individual, whether in the private or public sector. Every American deserves the freedom to negotiate for improved wages and working conditions, making it imperative for Congress to enact legislation that ensures this fundamental right becomes a reality.

Promoting Economic Equality

The well-being of working-class Americans is linked directly to the overall health of the nation's economy. Equal employment and housing opportunities should be enshrined in a new Equal Rights Amendment to promote fairness and opportunity for all Americans, regardless of background or identity.

The time to act is now. Confronting the economic disparities that plague our nation is essential for the creation of a more just and inclusive society.
