Ben Jealous on Jobs

 

 


Knows firsthand the benefits of working union jobs

It was the support of unions, good union jobs, and a double union household, that helped pull my family out of McCulloh Homes Public Housing. My success is due to my and my family's hard work, but it is also due to the fact that unions make hard work enough to succeed, and for too many families today that simply isn't the case. When I'm governor, hard work is going to be enough for everyone to make sure that their kids are better off than they are.

Fight to raise minimum wage to $15/hr

Wage growth for Maryland's families have fallen behind under Gov. Hogan and we need new leadership to create an economy that is truly inclusive and meets the needs of our state. I know how to build an economy that leaves no family behind, no worker behind, no young person behind and no person behind who˙has˙paid their debt to society. I've helped lead the fight for a $15 minimum wage and ensure fair treatment for groups routinely exploited and excluded from business and employment opportunities.
