Economy and Budget

Building an Economy that Works for All

The American economy should benefit all, not just the few at the top. Many American families continue to struggle while repeat politicians side with special interest groups.  We must restore the dignity of hard work by fighting to ensure that Northwest Florida families have access to well-paying jobs. Additionally, all workers should be guaranteed safe and fair workplaces. As a Congressman, Phil will be a champion for legislation that guarantees equal pay for equal work, supports paid family leave, and combats workplace discrimination. Phil Ehr will fight for a federal $12.50 minimum wage.


Policy Recommendations:

  • Raise $12.50 federal minimum wage
  • Rebuilding our crumbling infrastructure
  • Investing in education and job training
  • Fighting for a safe and equitable workplace environment
  • Investing in small business to boost local economies
