Yvette Herrell on Jobs

 

 


Worker visas: use to strengthen country, not cheap labor

We must place a greater premium on protecting American jobs for American workers and reduce the number of worker visas to only that which is truly needed and does not depress wages or eliminate opportunities for Americans. The first priority for worker visas must be strengthening our country, not providing cheap labor.

Oppose raising state minimum wage to $9/hour

SB 386: Raise minimum wage to $9/hour, with training wage of $8/hour.

Analysis by : It isn't the first time Martinez vetoed a minimum wage bill. In 2013, Martinez vetoed a bill to increase the minimum wage to $8.50 per hour. At the time, Martinez said she would have accepted a smaller minimum wage increase. In 2014, Martinez said she would have supported an increase to $8.00 per hour. The Legislature was unable to pass a minimum wage increase that year.

Veto Message: These minimum wages would have a disproportionate impact on our rural small businesses, without any corresponding protections for business owners. Our small businesses are the backbone of our state's economy, and those businesses, especially those in rural areas, cannot sustain the changes this bill puts forth.

Legislative Outcome: Passed Senate 24-6-12 on Mar/1/17; Passed House 41-27-2, Roll Call #505 on Mar/16/17; State Rep. Yvette Herrell voted NO; Vetoed on Apr/6/17.

Strongly Anti-livable income, according to AFA survey.

Herrell opposes the AFA survey question on livable income

The AFA inferred whether candidates agree or disagree with the statement, 'It is the government's responsibility to ensure everyone has a livable income'? Self-description: (American Family Association helps produce iVoterGuides): "Grounded in God; rooted in research"; they "thoroughly investigate candidates"; when they cannot "evaluate with confidence, they receive an 'Insufficient' rating" (& we exclude)
