Workers should receive a living wage. Economic security for you and I is tied to the economic security of all people. I support raising the minimum wage. I support sick leave and maternity leave legislation.
Next year will be the most challenging in history for addressing economic issues. Michigan is facing a huge debt load. Businesses and farms are facing bankruptcy in large numbers. Unemployment is at record levels. My objective will be to protect schools, healthcare, public safety, infrastructure and the environment. My education and experience make me the candidate to lead as we work to resolve budget issues.
