Economy and Jobs

Our economy must empower families with good-paying jobs, stability and security. Unfortunately, a rigged economy has created a growing gap between the super rich and working families. Congresswoman Lee is working to ensure every family has the opportunity to live the American dream. A thriving economy must include good-paying jobs, the right to organize and the ability to provide for a family.

As a member of the powerful federal spending committee, Congresswoman Lee has long advocated for increased federal resources for workforce training, STEM education and infrastructure development. Additionally, Congresswoman Lee is a vocal leader in the fight to end the wage gap, raise the minimum wage, establish a living wage and address growing income inequality. Our economy should work for everyone, not just the rich and well-connected.
