Overall, Iowa's economy is strong and our unemployment rate is historically low. 

Our government can do a lot to ensure we lift everyone up and leave no one behind. This includes creating policies which grow and expand the economy and provide the supports for individuals and families to achieve their American Dream. That means we can pass a pro-family and pro-business bill to lift the minimum wage. That means we can pass tax reform which supports job growth and lifts families up. That means we can pass an education reform package which encourages training in careers experiencing rapid growth. Put together, we can raise the quality of life throughout our state to a level that supports strong communities and strong families.

FROM WHERE I STAND:

The people of Iowa are hard-working and deserve a raise. The minimum wage is designed to create a minimum standard of living to protect the health and well-being of employees. This is something we can strive for within our community.

FROM WHERE I STAND:

Iowa is a state that doesn't mandate paid time off. As a family-friendly state, this issue is worthy of discussion because we need to do all we can to support all families throughout all stages of their lives.

FROM WHERE I STAND:

Iowa has an immediate and future need to support education and targeted job-training efforts across the board. Having a skilled labor force will likely be the single most-important element of a strong economy over the next decade.
