Congresswoman Joyce Beatty

Representing the 3rd District of Ohio

Jobs and the Economy

 

Beatty on Jobs and the Economy

America is strongest when we have a robust and thriving economy coupled with access to good-paying jobs. While the economy has mostly recovered from the Great Recession, we know that far too many families have not seen a pay raise in decades and the racial wealth gap continues to widen. A strong economy is only valuable when it lifts the prospects of all Americans, not merely those wealthy enough to invest in the stock market. That is why I will continue to advocate for legislation that stimulates economic growth while ensuring that all workers’ rights, including the right to unionize, are protected and celebrated.

Highlights of Beatty Work on Jobs and the Economy

  • Supports the Raise the Wage Act to gradually increase the federal minimum wage to $15 per hour.
  • Sponsor of the Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act and Public Service Freedom to Negotiate Act to strengthen collective bargaining rights.
