Minimum Wage
We need to increase the minimum wage for all. Right now the minimum wage is $7.25 per hour and have not increased since 2008 when it had went up from $6.55 to $7.25, it went up only $0.70 since 2008! And it plans to stay at $7.25 for years more to come.
Unless we step up and let our voices be heard. Citizens should have a voice in the United States senate. And I will make sure that you have your voices heard. It is a humans right to be able to survive and currently with Utah state, is planning to keep the minimum wage at $7.25 and let the citizens of the state suffer. I plan to change this. My proposal is that we raise the minimum to $15 a hour, this will help all survive and able to actually live on a minimum wage. This will be one of the first policies I will fight for as serving as your Senator. Think of the endless opportunities we can fight for if we come together, there is nothing we cannot do when it comes to the people of this country.
My proposal
  • Increase​ Minimum Wage to $15 per hour.
  • Have​ the citizens let their voices be heard in the United States senate.
  • Initiate a vote petition for the people to vote.
  • Increase the overall payroll for wage and salary employees by 10 percent.
Increase Minimum Wage to $15 Per Hour
Some states have already passed minimum wage to $15 per hour as Utah will be the last. This can change and we can fight for a minimum wage to $15.00 per hour. This will help the citizens of this state survive. Right now, there is a single mother of 6 struggling to feed her children as she is living on a minimum wage of $7.25 a hour. One of the reasons we are living in poverty, is because of the minimum wage and where it currently stands. We need to change this, and fight for a living wage. Since 2008, the minimum wage has not changed and according to Utah State, it plans to stay at $7.25 per hour for at least few more years. But what will happen when it does increase? It may increase from $7.25 to $7.50 we do not know as we are all kept in the dark. But the darkness does not have to takeover. We can fight for a living wage of at least $15 a hour and afford to put food on the table for us and our families. Stand with me and let's fight!
Letting The Citizens have their voices heard
The Utahns have been ignored for far way too long. As senator, I will make sure that you're voices are heard! Every step of the way, I will let Utahns vote on what should be changed in our state. As your senator, I will do my best to get what needs to be done  - ACTUALLY GET DONE!!! We need a Senator who will work for the people not the government and their allies. The current U.S. Senator for Utah Mike Lee has not got done what he was elected to get done. We need to elect someone who will actually get things done in the senate. And you the 'people' should have your voices heard. And I will make sure that your voices are heard.
Initiate a Voting Petition for the People To Vote
Mike Lee likes to do things that he so believes that this state actually needs and he has done absolutely nothing. Setting up a voting petition will allow people to vote for what actually needs to be done. This is a way for the people to get their voices heard. I promise that I will set a voting petition for Utahns to vote on what needs to be done in the senate, I will then argue for it to be passed. With republicans taking the senate, nothing will be done. We need to elect someone who will get these things done. Let the people vote!
Increasing the overall Payroll For Wage and Salary
Let me first start off by saying that the minimum wage has sat at $7.25 for almost 13 years. Since 2008! A year after that is when Mike Lee has been elected into office. Ask yourself: "If Mike Lee is relected in 2022, how much longer will the minimum wage stay the same?" This is only a question you can answer.
As your senator I will work for you the people. We will increase this minimum wage of $7.25 per hour to $15 per hour. This will help so many families and communities. Our people will have a minimum wage to actually survive. I cannot begin to imagine what a single mother of 6 living on a minimum wage of $7.25 would be like. People does not need to be living in poverty. We should have 'freedom', freedom to be who we want to be, freedom to do the things we want to do. I will help those in need and those are the citizens of Utah. This state will never reach a minimum of $15 unless we step up and fight for it. I am asking you 'The People', mothers, fathers, grandmothers, grandfathers, sons, daughters, to stand with me and let's fight in 2022 and get this wage passed for all utahns. Together, we are unstoppable. There is no limit to what we can accomplish if we stand together.
