• Raise the minimum wage to $15/hour NOW

  • Provide health care to all employees

  • Pay equity for women and people of color

  • Support local unions to provide our district with a skilled and trained workforce

It is time that the 99%, rather than only the wealthiest 1%, benefit from federal policy. Along with allies in Congress, I will propose to raise the minimum wage to $15/hour and require employers to provide health care to all working Hoosiers as one of my first priorities. I will also require paid leave, at least 10 days annually for all employees. I will fight for pay equity for women and people of color, whose wages and wealth are among the lowest in America. I will support local unions to encourage the development of a skilled and trained workforce that serves our communities and contributes to the diverse economy of Indiana’s 2nd District. These measures will help reduce obscene levels of income inequality in America.
