Las Vegas, NV – Today, former Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto was endorsed by SEIU Local 1107. In the endorsement, SEIU cited Cortez Masto’s support for working families and raising the minimum wage.
In contrast to Cortez Masto standing with working families in the fight for better wages, Congressman Heck opposes raising the minimum wage. Nevada State Democratic Party Press Secretary Sarah Zukowski released the following statement on Congressman Heck failing Nevada workers:
“Congressman Heck apparently thinks that full-time hourly workers are expected to live on $15,000 per year. Congressman Heck’s narrow, right-wing ideology is hurting Nevada’s economy, as well as our state’s workers and families.”
