Chris believes that every Delawarean, and every American, should be able to provide for themselves and their families. He also knows that in order for our country to succeed, we need to build an economy that prioritizes workers and families first, not corporate shareholders and the wealthiest Americans.
Chris knows that in today’s economy, it’s more important than ever to ensure that American workers and families are able to reap the rewards of their hard work and our country’s success through good wages and benefits. That’s why he has pushed to raise the minimum wage in Delaware and states across the country, and why he authored landmark legislation to expand retirement benefits, which has been supported by the AARP and organized labor.
Chris is also a leading advocate in the Senate for investments in education and workforce training programs that help Americans get the skills and credentials they need to compete in the global economy. He’s also one of the Senate’s top supporters of American manufacturing and American innovation, two pillars of our economy that have made the United States economy the world’s strongest.
Chris also has a long record of protecting the rights and pensions of organized labor, advancing trade policies that support American workers, and ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to succeed.
