We must raise the minimum wage. Nebraska’s $9 per hour only works out to $18k per year; none of our working citizens should be living below the poverty line.
We should continue to support investments in infrastructure. We need to increase investments from all levels of government and the private sector to meet our 21st-century needs by supporting bipartisan legislation like the BUILDS Act which aims to generate jobs and support public safety.
We need to advocate public/private partnerships, fair trade, and smart and targeted regulation in order to grow our economy.
