Working moms and dads need a break... and a livable wage.
The past year has been dreadful when it comes to the working families in Iowa. Essential
workers are told they are essential, however the pay they receive is often not enough to keep
them from working two or three jobs. How does that support the concept of family when Mom
or Dad can’t be home because of their inability to earn a living wage at a single job. As
Democrats we realize the importance of hard work and determination but at the same time, by not paying a living wage, we are creating a class of Iowans who may never see economic liberty.
We call upon our legislature to stop toying with the lives of people who find themselves cash
strapped and unable to truly enjoy family life.
