Bob Lorinser believes there is no such thing as an unskilled worker. As a product of the rural working class, he knows all labor has value. Hardworking Americans, from factories to classrooms, ERs to farms, are the engines of our economy.
Investing in workers yields profit. Cutting social programs neglects our economy's greatest asset: people.
Bob knows rural workers in Michigan's 1st District embody the grit to reignite the American dream. To truly progress, Bob wants to lead a political paradigm shift that empowers and grows the middle class.
The CEO-to-worker pay ratio is now 399-to-1. In 1965, it was 20-to-1. Trickle-down economics doesn't work, has never worked, and will never work.
Bob believes workers are people first, and then, they remain the main driving force that moves the economy forward. To progress, we must care for everyone.
There's a direct correlation between worker satisfaction and worker productivity. Workers are happier and better at what they do when society meets workers' needs — unions, family-sustaining wages, healthcare, education, housing, and childcare.
Trickle-down economics is a myth designed to benefit the ultra-wealthy. To help all Americans thrive, Bob will tirelessly invest in everyday hardworking people and fight for labor reform.
