Help working parents afford child care through targeted tax breaks. Increased funding for adult education, literacy, and skills training.

 Women of color and Immigrants are Georgia’s most successful entrepreneurs and yet remain left out of government contracts and do not have access to capital. 

We should be alleviating the tax burden being shouldered by working-class families. All corporations that operate in Georgia, both domestic and foreign, need to pay their fair share of taxes. I support enacting a corporate minimum tax. We need to trim back tax breaks for big business and invest in healthcare, education and strengthen Georgia’s communities. 

 

Unions amplify the voices of the working class, recognize diversity as a strength, and know inclusion is integral to a strong economy and a strong democracy. Unions work for gender equality and social and economic justice. Unions set the precedent for workplace safety and equity for all workers. The racial and gender gaps, growing hostility towards immigrants, and our state’s exclusion of people of color from financial opportunities, loans, quality education, and gainful employment are counterproductive to our State’s economic growth. Unions seek to dismantle these oppressive barriers by mobilizing, advocating and representing the interests of all working people from all backgrounds and gender identities.
