Jobs & Financial Security
For too many Texas households, working a full-time job is no longer enough to support a family and provide security in retirement. Texans in low-wage employment are forced to work multiple jobs to make ends meet and still experience difficulties affording rent, food, and reliable transportation. Additionally, low-wage workers face challenges of debt while lacking the ability to save for a secure retirement. Texas public policy must support work, ensure employers pay livable wages, and prioritize health and wellness over profit.
