Jobs and the Economy

I believe that America’s working families are the backbone of our economy and country. Our policies must reflect that and strengthen America’s middle class by creating good jobs that pay fair wages and offer workers the benefits they deserve. From rights in the workplace to consumer protections, affordable health care and support for small businesses, each policy impacts the economic well-being of our country. After years of financial sector deregulation and the subsequent housing crisis that led to the Great Recession, I have supported aggressive policies to create jobs and regulate a reckless financial sector in order to get our economy back on track. Now is the time for comprehensive solutions to rewrite the rules of our economy so it works for all Americans, not just the wealthy.
