Each day that Congresswoman Matsui serves as Sacramento’s Representative, she is working to push the economy forward for American families. The Congresswoman has championed making targeted investments in areas that will grow the economy and create high-paying jobs: clean energy, education, health care and infrastructure.
Due to policies enacted by the Obama Administration and Congressional Democrats, businesses have added millions of jobs and our economy experienced an unprecedented number of consecutive months of growth in private sector job creation. In California alone, over 1.5 million net private sector jobs have been added and the unemployment rate has gone down 6.5 percent since the recession. But more work remains to strengthen this growth and ensure the economy benefits working families.
In order to continue to spur economic growth and create good-paying, full-time jobs in the United States, House Democrats have led "A Better Deal" plan that calls for investments in our nation’s infrastructure, in apprenticeship programs that open up access to good paying jobs, and in advanced research to unleash innovation.
The Congresswoman has joined with her Democratic Women’s Working Group (DWWG) colleagues to promote the Women’s Economic Agenda, which is grounded in the knowledge that when women succeed, America succeeds.
As we strive to build and strengthen our economy, Congresswoman Matsui is committed to continue fighting to keep Sacramento a wonderful place to work and live.
