Lucas Kunce: Pro-union, raise minimum wage to $15/hour

Lucas supports passing the PRO Act, raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour, strengthening the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and ending government-section pay discrimination against Americans with disabilities. As Senator, he'll also fight back against the outsourcing and privatization of essential services provided by public employees in federal, state, and local governments.

Tim Shepard: Accountability for sexism, sexual harassment in workplace

Women deserve fairness, ranging from equal pay and parental leave to their access to healthcare, educational opportunities, and representation in leadership roles. That means supporting stronger accountability for institutionalized sexism, sexual harassment, and discriminatory workplace environments. It also means recognition and support for women who may have roles outside the traditional workplace, whether that is their disproportionate roles as caregivers or the criminalization of sex work.

Tim Shepard: Make minimum wage, a living wage

Make minimum wage, a living wage. The bottom quartile of income earners in our country has not shared in the upside of wealth creation for decades. We need to revisit policies that have caused this inequality and fight to make sure the economic growth benefits everyone who shared in creating and sustaining that growth and to do this across all income levels.

Tim Shepard: Support stronger union and labor regulations

We must fight so-called "right to work" types of legislation that continue to claw away at working people's rights. When capital (investors) divorces itself from labor (workers), the whole paradigm shifts away from capitalism and one step closer to feudalism. We need to support stronger union and labor regulations that recognize workers' rights and that protect their ability for collective bargaining.

Trudy Busch Valentine: Raise the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour

Raising the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour. No one should have to work multiple jobs just to afford groceries or a roof over their head. The federal minimum wage hasn't been raised in 13 years and it's far past time to invest in a living wage for all Americans.

Trudy Busch Valentine: Guarantee equal pay for equal work

Guaranteeing equal pay for equal work. Trudy believes people who do the same work should receive the same pay, regardless of their gender. Equal pay is also good for our economy. If women were simply paid the same as men, we could cut poverty among working women in half.

Trudy Busch Valentine: Support PRO Act: advocate for right of workers to unionize

Championing labor unions--the backbone of the middle class--by supporting the PRO Act. We've seen a decline in worker protections that has occurred in tandem with the decline of labor unions across the country. In the U.S. Senate, Trudy will be a fearless advocate for the right of all workers to unionize. That starts with supporting the PRO Act which would require employers to allow employees to communicate about and conduct organizing efforts.
