Angie Craig on Jobs

 

 


Labor built our middle class & drives our economy

I'm working to protect the rights of our unions and their members to organize and collectively bargain for fair, safe workplaces. Labor has built our middle class, and it continues to drive our economy. Encourage companies to invest in their employees by closing tax loopholes that are currently encouraging them to move their jobs overseas. Instead, we should replace these loopholes with tax credits for companies that hire American Workers.

Create training partnerships between employers, schools

Everybody, whether they attend a four-year college or pursue a trade, should be able to find a good-paying career. That's exactly why I introduced the 21st Century Workforce Partnerships Act to create hands-on training, and work with local employers and schools to make sure these training programs work together to prepare students for the high-skill jobs available today.

Encourage industry to recruit, hire, and train veterans

We must make sure veterans have access to good healthcare and quality employment opportunities. We can do more to encourage private industry to recruit, hire, mentor and train veterans. I know it is possible because I did it myself: as a leader at a major Minnesota company, I created a program that put veterans to work in our company and across the medical technology industry.

Ensure every woman is paid fairly for equal work

I started a Women In Business program to support and mentor women in their career choices. I cosponsored the Paycheck Fairness Act, because it's time that our laws ensure every woman is paid fairly for equal work. We also must make sure that young women are being exposed to and encouraged to pursue careers in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) fields, which currently count only 23% women among their workforce.
