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.
