Our community is at its best when we have an economy that works for all. When everyone has the opportunity to fulfill their potential, pursue their dreams, and become economically secure. Right now, many workers face barriers to the resources that strengthen opportunity, such as affordable housing, affordable and quality childcare, living wages, and stable transportation. When policies and wages do not keep pace with the needs of families, it can continue hardship instead of strengthen opportunity.
The future of our city depends on ensuring that the pathways of opportunity are open and accessible to all. When we allow families to struggle, that ruins progress for all of us.
