I helped found a successful software company that employs 50 people around the world. I understand the challenges of building a company and know that employees make it a success. It's never just the founders of a company--it's all the hard-working people.
I will work to expand Idaho's economy with jobs that pay a fair wage. I want to provide opportunity for companies and citizens to grow and prosper.
In 2016, five percent of Idaho's workers make the minimum wage or below, in 2017 that number is 3.3%. We are one of five states with the highest percentage of minimum wage workers. We need to change our state policies to promote higher wages, create jobs, and improve the schools that train our people to fill them.
