Fred Hubbell on Jobs
Raise minimum wage at state level; allow cities to raise too
Minimum Wage: Raise the minimum wage above $7.25/hour?
Hubbell: Yes. Raise at state level, while allowing cities and communities to go higher as needed.
Reynolds: No. Supported bill keeping state minimum wage at $7.25 an hour and preventing counties and communities from raising it.

Believes in unions and equitable collective bargaining
Expanded collective bargaining is not only the right thing to do, it's personal to Fred. He is a former labor union member. When Fred later became a business leader, he regularly worked with unions to encourage their
representation in the workforce and ensure fairness at each and every level. The dismantling of workers' rights in Iowa is politically motivated and wrong. Every Iowan deserves safe working conditions and to be paid fairly for their work.
