No single person, let alone family, can survive on the current $300 a week that Colorado's minimum wage provides. Workers should not have to work two or three part time jobs to make ends meet. Dan Pabon supports raising the minimum wage to a living wage, and helping families survive and thrive in their communities.
We must make sure our communities and families are safe from gun violence. Dan Pabon will work to keep guns out of the hands of violent, repeat offenders, close the loopholes on straw purchasing and background checks, and stop the spread of illegal, dangerous firearms.
Economy and Jobs
Maintaining and growing a strong economy for Colorado is one of Dan Pabon's areas of focus in the Capitol. He has supported and lead initiatives, like BuildColorado.com, to expand job training and give opportunities for people to learn new skills to join or rejoin the workforce.
Our families should be able to live in their communities, but sky-rocketing housing prices are making many areas of Colorado, and Denver in particular, inaccessible. Dan Pabon will work with stakeholders throughout the state to add more revenue to building more affordable housing.
In 2016, there is no excuse for women to make less than men for the same work. Dan Pabon worked to pass the Colorado Pay Equity Commission to help close the pay disparity for women and people of color in Colorado. He will continue to fight for equal pay until everyone has the same opportunities to succeed.
