Economic Opportunity for All
Senator Wyden is focused on creating good-paying middle-class jobs in Oregon, boosting wages for Oregon families, and leveling the playing field for Oregon’s small businesses. Wyden uses his leadership on the Finance Committee to give a leg up to families walking an economic tightrope and develop innovative ways to grow our economy from the middle out. Whether it’s in tax or trade, Wyden has a long track record of pursuing real bipartisan solutions that put workers and families first.
In 2019 Senator Wyden introduced the ELEVATE Act to bring more Americans into the workforce by reducing barriers to employment by providing funding for public and private subsidized employment programs, which help workers access training and other supports to ensure income stability and their long-term success in the job market.
In 2022, the Senate passed Senator Wyden’s legislation to hold companies accountable for rewarding their shareholders and CEOs with stock buybacks, and instead invest in their workers.
