Growing Our Economy and Helping Families Succeed
When Cindy goes to Washington, her top priority will be putting Iowa families to work in good-paying jobs. She’ll level the playing field by raising wages, addressing unfair trade deals that put our workers at risk, protecting our unions and promoting Main Street over Wall Street.
For too long, Washington politicians have been putting partisan politics before Iowa families. Their failure to act has hurt the most vulnerable in our communities and hindered our small business owners and entrepreneurs from starting and growing businesses. As a small business owner, Cindy understands the challenges facing Iowans. Cindy will fight for our local businesses by creating grant programs to support entrepreneurs and small businesses and passing tax relief so our small businesses can grow.
Cindy will fight to pass equal pay legislation. Here in Iowa, women and their families are losing a combined income of nearly $5 billion each year. Cindy will also support a National Paid Family Leave Act, so no one risks losing a day’s pay to care for a sick child or loved one. And she’ll work to increase the availability of affordable childcare so working families can save for their children’s future.
