“As a consequence of the novel coronavirus outbreak, our economy has suffered and will suffer more. We lost thousands of jobs, and some employers have even reduced the working hours to employees they decided to retain. Therefore, our community needs new ideas on how to bring back jobs and improve work conditions.”
Taxing the Rich
“The hard-working American people deserve to have a decent living wage. Nevertheless, taxing the rich is not the solution. Common sense dictates that if you tax the rich, they will pass along the cost of doing business to us. In the end, we will end up paying more for products and services.”
New Jobs Creation
“We need to bring good-paying jobs to Florida by incentivizing creating new industries and jobs in our city. Promote policies that will benefit the Film industry incursion into the South Florida markets. We will encourage new filming productions and create and implement programs like those outlined hereunder to improve our local economy.”
Job Creation in The Trucking Industry
“The U.S. trucking industry is essential for the U.S. economy. This industry accounts for more than 5% of all the full-time jobs in America; nevertheless, truckers themselves earn a lower-than-average wage.
Improving Work Conditions in The Industry
‘The Trucking industry moves seventy-one percent of all the freight in America. Moreover, nearly five percent of all the full-time jobs in the country are in the trucking industry. Hence, my office will support a program that will bring better working conditions, remuneration, and benefits into the industry. My office will seek federal funding to incentivize nonprofit organizations in the industry to promote better pay and benefits.”
The participating organizations will compete in the national trucking industry. Additionally, they will produce at a lower cost by cutting off the middleman and keeping in-house brokers. Also, these organizations will have to keep in-house dispatch, essential mechanical and body shop services. Those organizations accessing those funds will be contractually mandated to allocate their profits to provide better benefits to their members.
“Opportunity for the Youth” Program
“We will seek additional funds allocated to training programs. Moreover, those programs will incentivize the incursion into new careers for young college dropouts or recent high school graduates. Any employment opportunity created by the aforementioned organizations would directly benefit the “Opportunity for the Youth” program. Moreover, the organizations will be contractually bound to facilitate hiring those adolescents participating in the previously named program.”
“I will promote legislation to achieve transparency in economic transactions between shipping companies and brokers. Thereby, the truckers can make better decisions when accepting transporting cargo.”
