Jobs & A Living Wage

We are heading toward a new Depression Era. Everyone deserves work, and this should be at a livable wage.

Move toward a full employment economy.

Raise the minimum wage, in stages, to $15 per hour by 2025 or earlier.
Support small business, the largest generator of jobs, so they can pass the savings on to workers.
    -- example, Medicaid expansion makes it easier to hire and retain workers.
Leverage the positive role of unions.
Support processes that have achieved improved conditions for workers here and elsewhere, examples:  
    -- community benefits agreements, such as with the LAANE coalition in Los Angeles
    -- labor-management partnerships, example:  Kaiser Permanente on the West Coast
Support affordable day care and paid parental leave.
