Dignity of Work and Wages
I will fight for a living minimum wage of at least $15 hourly because no one in Texas should work full time and still live in poverty. I will fight for equal pay for equal work because the inequality that women face is a disgrace. I will fight for Worker’s Compensation as a requirement because Texas is the only state where injuries on the job are NOT covered. I will fight for enforcement of Contract Labor laws, and for the right of workers to organize and bargain.
