If Iowa is known for one thing to those who don't live and work here, it is that we have great soil for growing crops that feed the world. It's true. And we should take that concept and do the same thing to grow our economy and job prospects for everyone.
Last week, I released my plan, "Grow Iowa's Economy" to ensure we have a robust economy and are set up to have jobs of the future.
My four-point plan will raise the quality of life throughout our state to a level that supports strong communities and strong families.
Increase the statewide minimum wage
Create an Iowa Startup Fund
Support programs to close the skills gap
