Priorities

Economy

Wall Street bankers and big corporations are getting richer every year, while the everyday folks who make up the backbone of our economy are still being squeezed. Ruben is fighting to build an economy that works for everyone, and makes life affordable for hard-working families. 

That starts with lowering costs and empowering workers. In the Senate, Ruben will lead the charge to protect and expand workers’ right to organize and collectively bargain. Ruben knows the dignity of work and understands wages must keep up with the cost of living. That’s why he will fight to raise the minimum wage to a living wage of at least $15/hour, a common sense policy that is both widely supported by Arizonans and absolutely necessary for hardworking families to get by. 

Ruben also wants to bring more high-paying jobs to Arizona. That is why he was proud to vote for the CHIPS and Science Act, which is already bringing thousands of semiconductor manufacturing jobs to our state. And he supports small businesses. He has consistently advocated for increased funding for the Community Development Financial Institution Fund to support growth in underserved communities, and he successfully secured an increase in the standard mileage deduction rate to lower gas costs for small businesses and the self-employed.

But Ruben also knows that we need to end the system of tax loopholes and exorbitant giveaways for the rich. It is inexcusable that billionaires and corporations continuously exploit our tax code — Ruben is committed to making sure they pay their fair share
