Growing and sustaining the middle class

Senator Casey believes that the middle class and working people are the economic engine of our economy, and that an economy built by and for them is good for America.  As such, he champions economic policies built around workers and creating good-paying jobs in Pennsylvania, and lowering costs for families.

Senator Casey believes in promoting a fair economy with equal opportunities for all Pennsylvanians to work hard and get ahead.  This vision relies on educational opportunities, investments in children and families, strong infrastructure, fair tax policies, worker protections and labor rights, and is founded on the premise that growing inequality is both inconsistent with American principles and an impediment to equal opportunity.
