Kathy Szeliga on Jobs

 

 


Look to improve wages for all, not how low wages should be

Q: Do you support an increase in the federal minimum wage?

Szeliga: In my life I've worked a variety of minimum wage jobs. I put up drywall and helped build a golf course. I was a dishwasher, parking lot attendant, maid, and waitress. With hard work, I rose up through the ranks to be the housekeeping manager at a resort and eventually the co-owner of a small construction firm with my husband. I believe government leaders should not be arguing on how low wages should be, but should be looking for ways to improve wages for all Marylanders. We must invest in education and training for middle-class families so we can raise our standard of living.
