An honest day's work deserves a fair day's pay.

For me, it's simple: an honest day's work deserves a fair day's pay. I'm sick of watching massive corporations hand out millions of dollars to CEOs and shareholders while all they give workers are excuses.

That's why in Congress, I've consistently voted to raise the minimum wage so hardworking people can support their families. In fact, I cosponsored the Raise the Wage act of 2019.

Alek Skarlatos not only doesn't want to raise the minimum wage, he recently said he does not support minimum wage laws at all.

Thanks to extremist positions like that, Skarlatos's wealthy donors have funneled millions of dollars into Oregon so they can run dishonest attacks on me.

We've got to fight back with everything we've got for the next three weeks. Chip in now to get the truth about Alek out loud and clear!

It's simply wrong that millions of Americans are working full time yet still live below the poverty line. It's bad for the country and it's bad for the economy. But we can do something about it.

Here in Oregon, we've proven that fair wages recharge the local economy as workers have more money to spend at local stores and on local services. Alek Skarlatos still thinks we should get rid of the minimum wage. If he had his way, predatory corporate employers could pay workers as little as they wanted. This would gut the take-home pay for essential workers, including childcare providers, school bus drivers, hospital support staff, and grocery workers.

It's no surprise that wealthy CEOs are falling all over themselves to write checks to Alek and the Super PACs that are supporting him. That's how they're outraising us three to one.

We don't have a gang of millionaires lining up to fund this campaign. We're a movement of grassroots activists who believe in the simple idea that people should be paid fairly for their work.

Contribute now to show that their corporate-funded operation can't defeat our people-powered movement!
