We should legislate equal pay for equal work. Protect jobs and seniority when interrupted by childbirth.
Medicare needs to be expanded to cover everyone and until that happens expand state coverage as much as possible under current laws.
A vibrant economy is not possible until people have discretionary income. Minimum wage must be a livable wage. Unions must be given stronger legislative protection. The union busting "Right to Work for Less" legislation must be repealed. Tax revenue must match our liabilities, must be progressive, and not overly burden those at the bottom of the income scale who are barely getting by. Corporations that benefit the most from our infrastructure must pay their fair share of taxes.
We need a more extensive background check. Those that suffer from disabilities that cause them to be a danger to themselves and others should not own firearms. People with a history of domestic violence should not own guns. All guns should be registered and insured. Training in the safe care and use of firearms should be required before ownership is allowed. Ammunition sales should be controlled and only sold to those who have registered their firearms.
We must first address the underlying problem. We must provide hope and opportunities for everyone. Education and job training so that young people have real futures. Educate the public about the misleading stereotypes and the social inequalities that have created the stereotypes. People of every color and religion that are provided with sufficient food and shelter, equal access to a quality education, equal access to mentors, and equal opportunities, can be equally successful.
