“Labor unions and their bosses are the reason that many of our nation’s schools are still shuttered, even though science says in-person education is low-risk. The pandemic has created not only a health crisis, but also an education crisis that I fear may permanently affect the future of millions of students, especially those who grew up in poverty like I did. For our children’s sake, schools must be fully reopened for in-person learning.”

"Anyone who says that Republicans are not interested in increasing the minimum wage, is purposely misleading you. Republicans want to increase the minimum wage—the real question is how do you do it? History shows us that by adopting pro-growth policies, unemployment goes down and wages will go up. I’m not prepared to tell mom-and-pop shops that are already on life support because of the pandemic that they will have to fire their staff and permanently close their doors. This is a fight worth fighting."

“Education is the closest thing to magic we have in America and is the most valuable gift we can pass down to our children,” said Senator Tim Scott. “Too often the education debate is centered on what we do here in Washington, instead of reflecting the conversations happening around dinner tables across the country."
