Jobs & Economy

As the economy continues to recover from the pandemic, we need to support our small businesses and prepare potential employees to fill jobs as they become available. We must return to sound economic principles and that means limiting the role of the federal government in people’s lives, not expanding it. It is vital that we rein in runaway spending, think carefully about our future priorities, and prevent tax hikes before we stunt the United States’ economic recovery. 

It is critical that we protect our individual liberties and economic freedoms and that means having an agenda that is pro-worker, pro-family, pro-growth, and most of all, pro-American. I will continue to focus on policies that create more jobs, spur growth and innovation, support our area businesses, create more jobs for hard-working Americans, and put more money in the pockets of hard-working Americans. 

Additionally, I am a cosponsor of the DRIVE-Safe Act which would help our nation’s current truck driver shortage by creating a rigorous safety and training program that enables 18-21-year-old drivers, who have already obtained a commercial driver’s license (CDL), to drive across state lines. 

I believe we must prioritize workforce development and continue to promote Career and Technical Education (CTE) and Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) programs to better prepare our future workforce with the necessary skills and knowledge to compete in a global economy. By increasing access to dual enrollment CTE training courses so students can work towards credentials while still in high school, we can better prepare our future professionals. By taking less than two years to complete, these qualifications provide a more tangible approach to education and qualify students for well-paying jobs.

We must do what’s possible to promote the workforce of tomorrow.
