Speaker Thissen Highlights Minnesota's Progress for Working Families at White House Summit

Minnesota has done historic work over the last 18 months on policies that will increase economic opportunity andsecurity for hard working middle-class families in our state. From historic investments in early childhood education, all-day kindergarten and a college tuition freeze to an increase in the minimum wage to passage of the Women's a Economic Security Act, Minnesota is leading the nation toward a more inclusive and broadly prosperous economy.

Our work together was recognized on Monday at the White House Summit on Working Families in Washington, D.C. President Barack Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama, and Vice President Joe Biden attended the event, which focused on how we can strengthen workplaces across the nation to better support working families while boosting businesses' bottom lines and ensuring America's global competitiveness in years to come. 

I was honored to speak at the summit and share the story of the progress we've made here in Minnesota to 1,200 participants from across America, who came together in an effort to build a more fair economy. I highlighted the work we've done on the Women's Economic Security Act, which aims to close the gender pay gap, strengthen workplace flexibility and protections for pregnant mothers, and expand employment opportunities for women in high-wage, high-demand professions.

Of course, none of this progress could have been made without you and your support. Thank you so much.
