Economic Fairness is the ability for everyone to benefit from economic growth and to have an economy that serves the needs and interests of all people, not just the wealthy.
For decades we’ve undervalued our workforce in the United States through failed public policy and “trickle down” economics. Our families are suffering and we’re done being silent about it. We demand economic fairness for our families, for our friends, for our neighbors and for the world that we want to live in.
WHAT DOES ECONOMIC FAIRNESS
INCREASED PAY FOR LOW &
MIDDLE INCOME WORKERS
Income inequality is steadily increasing due to slow wage growth. That slow wage growth takes away from low and middle wage workers give and gives it to those at the top. Raising wages for low and middle wage earners will raise living standards for all Americans.

EMPOWERMENT TO MAKE
There are many barriers that prevent people from making the kind of economic decisions that will put themselves and their families in a better position. Every person has the right to define and determine their own path of success.

I believe in a world with an even economic playing field where the economy works for all of us and not just the ultra rich.
