Closing the Wealth Gap

It saddens me to know that millennials are on track to do worse than their parents economically. For all of their sacrifices and modest savings, still thousands of Ohio’s parents are struggling to make ends meet because they earn a meager minimum wage of $8.55.  Most people working minimum wage jobs don’t get health care benefits or paid sick leave. When they get sick, many go to work because they can’t afford to lose income. In this age of the global pandemic, going to work sick could cost lives. No adult should make less than a living wage.

For too long, policy makers have provided relief for big businesses at the expense of average citizens. The wealth gap gets bigger every time a Congressperson votes against a relief bill, or calls for cuts to social security, or a Wall Street bail out. My opponent shamefully voted against the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, Economic Security (CARES) Act, The Heroes Act, and against expanding social security.

As your Congresswoman, I will work to close the wealth gap by supporting a living wage, and ensuring the integrity of our social security system. I will advocate for creative financing options that will fulfill the dream of owning a home or a small business.
