U.S. Rep. Darren Soto of Orlando has been named one of four co-chairs of a new jobs task force created by the Democratic Caucus in the House of Representatives. “Our priority is to support the men and women who make up the backbone of our country”.
The leaders of each new task force plan to meet with business and labor leaders, experts and workers to develop policy goals, according to the caucus. “The new economy presents challenges and opportunities, and it is critical that Congress focus on policies that will support the American worker”. The others are called the Rebuilding America, Jobs With Dignity, Access to Jobs, and Reinvesting in Our Returning Heroes task forces.
Lawrence will serve as co-chair for the Jobs with Dignity Task Force, which will develop ideas for policies to raise wages and increase profit-sharing, enhance workers’ rights and benefits and promote financial and retirement security. “We must ensure everyone has the opportunity to achieve the American dream”.
Co-Chairs: Reps. Matt Cartwright (Pennsylvania), Jimmy Gomez (California), Donald Norcross (New Jersey), and Bonnie Watson Coleman (New Jersey). “In my district and across the nation, Americans are working longer hours, with stagnant wages, and fewer benefits, all while the cost of living is increasing; and they’re frustrated they can’t get ahead”, said Dr. Ruiz. Susan DelBene of Washington, Debbie Dingell of MI, and Raja Krishnamoorthi of IL as co-chairs of the newly-formed House Democratic Caucus New Economy Task Force, Soto’s office announced Wednesday.
Dingell has been working to help the manufacturing-based economy in MI rebound since she was elected, and views the new task force as an extension of that work.
