3 things I will do if I win:

Icon: A person uses a shovel while another person sits working at a computer. The label reads "Jobs."1. Restore balance between business and labor, so that everyone is treated fairly and expectations for businesses are clearly understood by all. We’ll help bring businesses into compliance if they violate the law, not force them out of business.

Icon: A diploma, a graduation cap and a book, with the label "College."2. We need to close the skills-gap between the education students receive and the workforce needs of Oregon’s employers. Better skills means higher wages for Oregon families.

Icon: Flow chart starting with person, money goes into State of Oregon, out of state of oregon comes an icon of a shield and an icon of a graduation cap which goes back to the person3. When people are earning a living-wage job, not only can they create a brighter future for their families, but our state and local communities benefit. I’m committed to ensuring Oregon is a welcoming place for employers, and a safe place for workers.
