In today’s world, we all know how hard it can be to juggle both work and family. That is why I have worked in Congress to advance legislation that supports working families. I was a proud supporter of the Family and Medical Leave Act and I fully support an increase in the federal minimum wage. I have also authored legislation that would expand workforce protections.
