Unions are the backbone of Georgia’s economy.
With worker protections diminishing across the United States, it’s time for Georgia to take a stand ensuring workers receive the pay and benefits that are much deserved. We must protect and strengthen Georgia’s unions, and increase the state minimum wage from the current $5.15 an hour, one of the lowest state minimum wages in the nation.
As your State Representative, I will:
Enact legislation raising the state minimum wage from $5.15 an hour to at least $12 an hour to keep current with inflation rates and cost of living.
Give workers better protections and equal treatment for all workers.
Support legislation protecting and expanding our unions, and strengthening collective bargaining.
Enact legislation the eliminates right-to-work laws in Georgia, and passing legislation banning discrimination from the workplace.
Enact legislation that provides equal pay for women and men.
