I do think that a school day that matches the work day makes a lot of difference for working families, but the big driver of this effort is education. Period. We have a lot of students not gaining the skills they need, and it is pretty clear that school does not offer enough time to get that job done.
There's no doubt about it: Hillary is the best person to be our 45th president. Hillary has always been a tireless advocate for working families - she's never ceased to make sure everybody has a fair shot at achieving the American Dream.

That's what was really disturbing.
Debbie Wasserman Schultz
Like working families all across the state, we must find a way to make government live within its means.
Most families rely on two incomes to make ends meet, and when a woman earns less, we put working families at a huge disadvantage.
Ann McLane Kuster

In 1993, as House Democratic Leader, I led the fight to pass the Clinton-Gore economic plan - a plan designed to slash the deficit, invest in education, cut taxes for working families, and ask the wealthy among us to pay their fair share...
