Stephen Noble Smith on Jobs
Pass strongest pro-labor laws in the country
Eliminate so-called "Right-to-Work." Restore the Prevailing Wage. Institute collective bargaining for public employees. Ensure that teachers, school service personnel, and all government employees have the right to organize. Ensure that all public
employee unions have office space and paid time to conduct union duties. Pass the strongest laws in the country related to protecting the right to organize, and strike. Raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour for all employees.
Pay for workers compensation insurance for volunteer first-responders. Provide a $1000/year stipend for all volunteer firefighters and EMS
workers who reach a threshold level of service each year. Make sure that first responders are represented at every level of government. We need first responders helping to drive policy as it relates to the opioid epidemic, roads, cell towers, and more.
