Statements about Labor

"We have a governor who's vetoed measures like increasing our minimum wage and restoring the earned income tax cut."

"Right now one of our highest job growth sectors is Leisure and Hospitality. We've added jobs that mostly fall within the restaurant and bar sector industry. These are not high-paying jobs, as the U.S. Department of Labor estimates this is an industry sector with the lowest average wages and the lowest proportion of its workforce earning minimum or subminimum wage jobs."

"More than 50 percent of those people getting minimum wage in this state are high school students."
