Bob Massie on Jobs
Supports $15 per hour minimum wage ballot question
Massie said the three [Democratic gubernatorial] candidates together recently collected signatures for the $15 per hour minimum wage ballot question drive at Park Street Station. "It's as if the building blocks are being pulled away
from people," he said. "The American Dream is slipping away." But the problems, he said, are structural: "Bring in transportation like most other countries have. Develop renewable energy. Bring the costs of education down."
Massie noted his past experiences as a minister and at Harvard Business School, and work for economic and racial justice. He also spoke of his personal health challenges. Born with hemophilia, he was on braces as a child. "The national
health program in France got me out of those crutches," he said. "These issues are burned into me because of my experiences."
