The reason that so many in our district lack opportunities for employment is because so many are immigrants.
We need to encourage apprenticeship programs that allow those who choose not to attend college to have opportunities in trades. I will fight for legislation that creates new pathways to ensure that there are good paying jobs available to every resident in the 15th District.
To further that goal, we should continue the call to create a Green New Deal that will allow us to improve our infrastructure and create jobs in the process. These high quality, union jobs will allow young people the opportunity to find employment and improve our infrastructure while fighting climate change.
