Economic Justice

We want an economy that works for all of us, not just the wealthy few. Virginians deserve a fair and equitable tax system that advances racial justice, stronger worker protections, and a living wage so families can thrive and invest in the future. We support legislation that will: 

  1. Increase Virginia's minimum wage to at least $15.00 per hour to support low-wage workers
  2. Strengthen the state's Earned Income Tax Credit by making it fully refundable
  3. Expand access to comprehensive paid family and medical leave 
  4. Eliminate corporate tax loopholes to ensure that corporations pay their fair share 
  5. Legalize marijuana and use a portion of the tax revenue to provide grants to Black entrepreneurs to enter the market
  6. Repeal anti-worker policies that limit workers' ability to collectively bargain for better wages, benefits, and working conditions 
  7. Establish worker protections so employees do not live in fear of losing their jobs due to their gender identity or sexual orientation 
  8. Ensure that all workers receive equal pay for equal work regardless of sex, gender, gender identity, or sexual orientation.
