Secure and sustainable employment is essential for strengthening Massachusetts communities. By providing opportunity for workers and business owners alike, we can create an economy that serves the entire community. A quality work environment can decrease crime and violence, as well as boost tax revenue that can be reinvested into to benefit all Massachusetts residents.

I will:

  • Support raising the minimum wage to $15/hr, which will impact 950,000 workers across Massachusetts
  • Reject setting a lower youth minimum wage, (recognizing the financial impact that this has on families)
  • Restore funding to the Small Business Technical Assistance Program, which provides grants to community groups to support local businesses in opening, growing or stabilizing their businesses
  • Partner with local businesses to implement job training programs that are effective and accessible, especially for single parents
  • Work to expand small business lending, funded by opposing big corporate tax breaks for companies like General Electric (GE)
