Why I'm Running
I am a small business owner, civil rights attorney, and working mom. I know Salem isn't doing enough for working families and businesses hard-hit by inflation; but as Labor Commissioner, I will put them first.
I have a plan to expand job training - helping businesses grow and create new jobs - so more Oregonians can find a good-paying job, earn a raise, and keep up with inflation.
My plan includes:
+ Invest in apprenticeship programs so everyone can earn a raise, whether or not they went to college;
+ Create more school-to-career pathways;
+ Staff our schools, construction sites, and hospitals by expanding job training;
+ Protect workers’ rights: guaranteed paid sick days, paid family leave, and fair wages; and more!
I am supported by a bipartisan and diverse coalition - Oregon’s last five Labor Commissioners, Democrat and Republican; the Oregon Independent Party; business; labor; and 125+ organizations and elected officials.
I hope you'll join us!
