LET'S BRING JOBS TO MAIN STREET.
I believe we create a stable economy by creating a quality of life in small towns in Tennessee that attracts businesses and industry. We should do more to support our small businesses on Main Street and the town square. We should increase the minimum wage so that hard-working moms and dads don’t have to work two and three jobs and miss out on putting their kids to bed.
We cannot let our small towns and businesses be overlooked for large corporations in urban centers. I think economic growth starts with investments in workers, then small businesses, and then large corporations.
I support unions and believe in the right to collectively bargain for higher wages, a safe workplace, and employee benefits that protect our families.
