The jobs of today aren’t guaranteed to be here tomorrow. As a country, we must look forward. We must create well-paying jobs in emerging industries and in sectors proven to benefit local communities. As a tech executive and small business owner, I recognize that every issue is a jobs issue. An economy built on struggling, overworked and overstressed workers is not an economy that works for all of us. It cannot thrive. Together, we can strengthen the American Dream for all of our families and ensure no family has to choose between health care, childcare, housing or food.
