Nearly a third of U.S. households are overburdened by housing costs.
Forty percent of adults can’t cover an emergency expense of $400 without borrowing or selling something.
Seven million Americans are three or more months behind on car payments.

For too many Americans hard work isn’t paying off like it should. And I want to change that.
Together, we can:
- Raise the minimum wage.
- Ensure workers are paid for overtime.
- Pass equal pay laws.
- Make it easier for workers to join a union, so they can collectively bargain for better wages, benefits, and conditions.
All work has dignity, and all work should be rewarded. Together, we can make that happen.
