Jobs

Democrats are committed to doing everything we can to build a full-employment economy, where everyone has a job that pays enough to raise a family and live in dignity with a sense of purpose. Democrats are committed to helping all Americans meet the challenges of the 21st century by spurring job creation, rebuilding our infrastructure, investing in clean-energy technologies and small businesses, and making sure corporations, the wealthy, and Wall Street pay their fair share.

We support:

  • Raise the minimum wage to $15.
  • Ensure workers are getting proper overtime pay.
  • End gender-based wage disparities.

We support our local unions, who in turn fight for all wage earners.
