Economic Justice – “Better family budget = better life”
– Any business with over 100 employees can afford to pay their employees a living wage in National City. Additionally, multi-billion dollar companies like Walmart, McDonalds, and Burger King have an obligation to invest in our community by investing in their workers. $10/hr is not enough for families to make ends meet, we deserve $15 now.
Rent Control and Rent Stabilization
– Rent prices in the San Diego region are among the top 10 in the nation. We must create a system within National City where large apartment complexes adjust their rates to reflect the cost of living increases and worker wages; not for the sake of making larger profits.
– America’s strength comes from our middle class and it is because of Unions that the middle class exists. We need to support more Union organizing in all sectors of the economy and improve access to government contracts for union friendly businesses.
