Steve Bullock on Jobs

 

 


Represented workers as labor lawyer; fight for minimum wage

Bullock has spent his career fighting on behalf of workers, students and families. Before serving in public office he represented workers as a labor lawyer and as a private citizen led the successful fight to raise Montana's minimum wage. With Washington, D.C. increasingly divided by partisanship, Bullock has moved Montana forward by bringing people together.

Guarantee equal pay for women

Bullock is understandably queasy about being labeled a capital-P Progressive. He walked the line during his 2016 reelection campaign: Although one of his campaign ads, narrated by his daughter, was about the need to guarantee equal pay for women, a liberal priority that many conservatives oppose and which is rarely a top-line campaign topic for Democrats in tight races, he also ran ads calling himself a fiscal conservative while slamming his wealthy opponent's proposed sales tax.

J.O.B.S. Bill: Jobs and Opportunity by Building Schools

Montanans want us to take a balanced approach: Let's save some, invest some and give some back.

We can invest some. I ask you to join me in prioritizing job creation, education and a more effective government. The first step you should take in creating jobs and investing in education is to put politics aside and pass the J.O.B.S. Bill. The quality of our workers attracts businesses to invest here. It's called the J.O.B.S. Bill, which stands for Jobs and Opportunity by Building Schools. We can take advantage of historically low interest rates and immediately create thousands of jobs across the state--and do it without raising taxes.

Stand with me and the over 2,500 construction workers we want to put to work building world class schools for our world class workforce. And while we are at it, let's make sure that those 2,500-plus construction workers newly employed by the J.O.B.S. Bill are our friends and neighbors.

Enforce that construction projects hire Montana residents

Right now, we have a law on the books that is supposed to require that at least half of the workers on any construction project funded by state or local tax dollars be Montana residents, but it's riddled with loopholes and not enforceable. When taxpayer money is funding a project, let's put Montana companies and Montana workers first.

Let's work together to close these loopholes and expand this requirement to all projects--not just construction. And let's also significantly increase the proportion of Montana workers required on any state or locally funded project. I hope you will join me to pass this measure so we can put more money into the hands of Montana businesses and create more jobs for Montana workers.
