    I strongly support a "living wage" which means that Iowa's minimum wage needs to be increased. Since Iowa's minimum wage is far below the living wage, this could be accomplished over a 3 - 5 years period. Income inequality also needs to be addressed through the Iowa tax system, looking at reducing regressive taxes that affect the lower-income families.

    Women in the U.S. who work full time, year round are paid only 80 cents for every dollar paid to men — and for women of color, the wage gap is even larger. It’s long past time to close the gap. The bottom line is that if you work hard and play by the rules, you should be rewarded with a good life for yourself and a better chance for your children to have a better future.

    We must not allow gender and sexual preferences to dictate wages. And I strongly support "Equal Pay for Equal Work". I am the candidate that will support a living wage for working class Americans. I am also for an increase in the national minimum wage.

    The minimum wage should keep pace with inflation and living expenses. A job that only pays the current minimum wage cannotprovide for a family.

    To fulfill the promise of equal opportunity for all, we need to provide our people a living wage. This is one area where one size clearly does not fit all. In a city like Berkeley, a living wage will be higher than other areas. We need a wage that will allow low paid workers to have a chance to live in our city. We can't make that jump all at once but we can commit to getting there over time.
