Protecting American Workers

Tim Scott believes in the dignity of all work.

Raising the minimum wage to $15 in the midst of a pandemic would crush small businesses to include restaurants that are already struggling to survive. This out-of-touch mandate could cost as many as 3.7 million hardworking Americans their jobs. Tim co-sponsored an amendment to protect these small businesses during the pandemic, however, the fight is not over. As America emerges from the pandemic, ideas that stifle growth will resurface. Tim Scott believes we should build on proposals that drive innovation, empower workers, and grow our economy.
