WORKERS CREATE WEALTH

Workers create wealth.  They deserve access to fair wages and safe workplaces.  We can no longer tolerate massive corporations that rack up billions in profits while their employees struggle to pay their bills and lack access to affordable healthcare and childcare.  I support raising the minimum wage and stopping employers from keeping part-time employees on poverty wages without access to benefits instead of paying people for full-time work. 

PREVENT EMPLOYEE MISCLASSIFICATIONS

Misclassification of employees as independent contractors is a growing issue for workers all around the United States.  To protect workers in Washington, I will bring forward legislation to combat misclassification in order to prevent employers from incorrectly withholding wage and benefit protections.

PROTECT THE RIGHTS OF WORKERS TO ORGANIZE

"Right to work" is really just "right to work for less."  Critical to the safety and security of American workers is their ability to organize together in pursuit of fair wages and benefits.  As a proud union member, I promise to protect workers' right to organize.
