GOVERNOR KATE BROWN: ON Oregon’s Economy, WORKERS’ RIGHTS & the future of EDUCATION


Governor Brown signed the Oregon Promise, reducing community college tuition to as low as $50 a term for high school graduates. She put career and technical education back in Oregon schools, so students graduate with a plan for their future. She started Future Ready Oregon to provide expanded access to skills training tied to local jobs with good pay and benefits.*

Oregon must be a state where learning is valued, prior learning is recognized, and every Oregonian has access to training programs and educational opportunities so they can obtain good, family-wage jobs and we can grow Oregon’s economy. That’s what my initiative, Future Ready Oregon is all about!

Since Kate Brown became our Governor, the Oregon economy has become one of the fastest growing in the country and unemployment has hit an all-time low. As long as Kate is our Governor, she will fight to make Oregon a place where everyone can lead a good life, with a quality job, and raise a family if they choose.*

I was so excited today to sign four #FairShot bills into law: paid sick leave for workers, ending the practice of asking applicants to list their criminal history; a new easy way to save for retirement; and ending profiling as a law enforcement tactic.

Yet, our work is not done. There are still people with full time jobs who are unable to make ends meet. We must carry on the fight to ensure all Oregonians have the opportunity to earn a living wage.

It is our duty to ensure that our youngest Oregonians have the tools to grow into healthy adults. It’s our duty to ensure they have access to education, health care, and a bright future.
