Brenda Lawrence on Jobs
Some of the disparities are depressingly familiar. Latino workers have significantly lower rates of access to paid sick days than the workforce as a whole: Only 47% of Latinos have paid sick days, compared to 61% of the total workforce.
Brenda Lawrence will enact a progressive agenda that will make it clear the need for public policy standards that guarantee all workers can earn the time they need to care for their health and their families without sacrificing their jobs or economic security.
Minimum wage policies do help raise the wages for America's lowest-paid workers--making an adequate minimum wage an important pillar of a national antipoverty agenda. Brenda Lawrence will fight to raise the federal minimum wage to $10.10 an hour.
