Economic Justice

We need to make it easier for all New Jersey residents to earn a respectable income so they can live well and retire with dignity.

I am fighting to protect the middle class by creating more opportunities for all members of society to earn livable wages and increasing access to paid leave. New Jersey has been a real leader across the nation in developing a strong paid leave program, and I have supported legislation that will update and improve this program so that it can better support the needs of working families. As a union leader, I know the value of prioritizing people over corporate profits. Consumers need a seat at the table in state government, and I have supported legislation that will create consumer protections for products containing formaldehyde as well as public utility ratepayers.
