Our economy will flourish through targeted public spending and a strong workforce
Over the last four years Texans have watched our state drop from the 8th largest economy in the world to the 13th. More Texans work minimum wage jobs than any other state. Many working families in Texas have to keep more than one job just to afford rent and utilities.
Meanwhile, our state has been making it harder for families to achieve economic stability because our legislature continues to shift the state’s financial burden away from multi-billion dollar corporations and puts it squarely in the laps of working Texans.
It is time Texas learns from our mistakes and corrects the course of our state economy. Through targeted public spending, workers rights expansion, equal pay for equal work for all Texans, and paid pregnancy and family leave, we can restore the Texas miracle and become the economic leader we once were.
