In a working economy, employers, government agencies, workers and family members each contribute to the economic system that supports a high quality of life. But today our economic system is out of balance.
Businesses are struggling with soaring health care costs and a shortage of low-cost retirement plans for their workers. Deteriorating infrastructure and shrinking services threaten public education, transportation, health and other critical public structures. Wages have stagnated or declined, even as worker productivity has increased. And our state's working families and small businesses pay a disproportionately high share of their income in taxes.
