Wall Street bankers are getting richer every year, while the workers who make up the backbone of our economy struggle to make ends meet. Ruben is fighting to build an economy that works for working people, not just the wealthy and well-connected.
That starts with empowering workers. In the Senate, Ruben will lead the charge to protect and expand workers’ right to organize and collectively bargain. Additionally, 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 to keep up with the rising cost of living.
Ruben also wants to bring more and better paying jobs to Arizona. That is why he was proud to support the CHIPS and Science Act, which will bring 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 to pay less in taxes than poor and middle class families.
