Economy & Jobs
I hear from Minnesotans every day about their concerns over the state of our economy and rising economic inequality. While we have made a strong recovery from the Great Recession, we have more to do to create good-paying jobs for all working families.
I strongly support investments in education and infrastructure that will make us more competitive. To stimulate economic growth and job creation, the government needs to ensure a fair playing field that protects both workers and businesses. I support legislation that promotes a thriving middle class and ensures that working people in America still have the opportunity to achieve success in our country.

Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.) and 35 Congressional colleagues are calling on the CEO of the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS), Barbara Stewart, to immediately suspend the closing of 46 state and territorial offices. Minnesota’s office is scheduled to close May 1, while some state offices have already closed. CNCS state and territorial offices administer AmeriCorps VISTA and National Senior Service Corps, including the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program, the Foster Grandparent Program, and the Senior Companion Program.
I want the federal government shutdown ended immediately and all federal workers to go back to work – with full pay. Unfortunately, for the past two weeks President Trump and House Republicans have once again proven they are incapable of responsibly governing our country.
