Equal pay for equal work, expand paid family leave

She will be a leader in fighting for equal pay for equal work and expanding paid family leave policies for all Oklahomans. It's past time we address the problems impacting Oklahoma women -- preventing domestic violence, fighting for equal pay, reducing the number of Oklahoma women in prison (which is the highest in the nation). These are Kendra Horn's priorities, and we need more people in Washington fighting for them.

Strengthen the middle class by increasing wages

Q: What specific legislative proposals will you support to ensure that good jobs paying a living wage are available to Americans?

A: In general, I would support legislation to strengthen the middle class by increasing wages, providing better benefits and protecting the rights of workers. My approach would be to incentivize these programs for businesses who want to be good actors in growing the middle class. I also believe access to higher education through college, CareerTech or other job training programs is important to increasing economic opportunity for all Americans.
