Doug Ose on Jobs

Former Republican Representative (CA-3)

 


Repeal law that employers provide benefits to more workers

[On Assembly Bill 5]: "I think we need to get our schools open, I think we need to get our businesses open, I think we need to tackle homelessness and drug addiction and mental illness that is so prevalent there. I think we need to repeal AB 5," he added, referring to the 2019 law known as Assembly Bill 5 that directs employers to provide benefits to more workers.

Opposed higher minimum wage; base income on productivity

Ose was a community activist and a leader of the Citrus Heights incorporation effort before running for former Rep. Vic Fazio's seat in 1998. Ose, then 43, owned duplex and mini-storage buildings. He opposed a higher minimum wage, arguing income should be based on productivity--and is not a government entitlement. "I'll work to hold government accountable for the money it spends, eliminate wasteful spending and make sure that taxpayers get their money's worth," he said during the campaign.
