Jobs and the Economy
Good jobs and a strong economy are critically important to the 12th District and to Congresswoman Adams’ work. She recognizes that small businesses and the middle class are the backbone of our economy—and they remain her primary focus.
Job creation and job training have always been priorities of Congresswoman Adams. As a member of the Education and the Workforce and the Small Business Committees, she will ensure that the 12th District feels the effects of the Nation’s economic recovery. She has cosponsored measures that promote U.S. jobs through our manufacturing industry, particular those that export goods.
Congresswoman Adams supports a simple and fair tax system that eliminates tax loopholes while cutting taxes for middle class Americans. Providing tax credits for working parents and increasing education tax credits will alleviate much of the burden faced by families. She has also supported measures to raise the minimum wage to a sustainable level because she understands that when people succeed in making a decent wage, the economy grows.
Congresswoman Adams strongly opposes any unfair trade deals that give high paying jobs manufacturing jobs to foreign countries while American families are struggling.
