Income Inequality

I believe workers should not have to work at poverty wages. We should follow New York City’s lead by increasing the minimum wage for fast food workers to $15 per hour by December 31, 2018 and for airport workers immediately and by December 31, 2019 for all workers. Also workers should be eligible for 12 weeks of paid family leave in 2018. The time may be used for caring for family members during a serious health condition. Workers should have paid sick time. It has been proven to increase productivity and helps keep fellow workers from getting sick as well.
