Juneau held a roundtable discussion in Billings to hear individual stories of economic hardship and to propose solutions to help more Montana families make ends meet and succeed and today’s economy.

“Traveling across the state, I hear regularly from Montana workers and small business owners who say that Congress hasn’t kept up with our changing economy,” Juneau said.  “My household economic priorities will help more families succeed and ensure that we have the workforce and business climate we need to compete in 2016 and beyond.”

Juneau’s priorities include:

  • Providing more affordable child care
  • Helping workers afford to care for sick loved ones
  • Raising the minimum wage
  • Guaranteeing equal pay for equal work
  • Strengthening the earned income tax credit
  • Tackling student loan debt
