Jobs & The Economy
Thanks to the grit and resilience and determination of the American people, we’ve begun to clear away the rubble from the financial crisis. A strong economy starts with a strong middle class. But for too long, increasing inequality and decreasing economic mobility have posed a fundamental threat to the basic bargain of America—that if you work hard and play by the rules, you can build a better life for you and your family. That’s why we need to preserve the American Dream by ensuring every American has access to good-paying jobs, the opportunity to own a home, and a quality education.
