• Every City Worker should be paid a minimum of $15 per hour with health coverage.
  • Every contractor with the city should pay every employee not only $15 an hour but offer reasonable health and sick leave benefits.  I will work with Denver Health and other providers to make this a reality. If you want to be part of Team Denver then you need to understand that you must adhere to certain core values.  Decent wages and health care is one of those values.  Frankly, it is also good fiscal stewardship as folks without heath care end up using facilities such as Denver Health and Denver taxpayers end up bearing the burden of those companies who do not do right by their employees.
  • Support City employees being represented by a union with collectively bargained for rights.
