Higher Wages for Working People

Work with our state legislature and pass a bill providing local city and county governments the sovereignty to establish a minimum-wage suited to the economic needs of its region. We will also fight for the increase of a statewide minimum-wage, push for higher wages for law enforcement officers and public school teachers in South and rural Texas, and work with both our state and federal government to establish a 5 year student loan forgiveness program for all public servants.

With poverty ratio ranging from 24.1% to 41.5% in South Texas, and the difficulties of retaining and recruiting good peace officers and teachers across our state, we believe the path to higher wages in Texas begins with investing in those who constantly make the the ultimate sacrifice in keeping our communities safe, drive our economy, and build the future leaders of tomorrow.
