Finding and keeping a job with good pay and benefits is the surest path to opportunity for most Coloradans, and in the recently completed session, legislators passed three bills to help workers get and stay on this path.
These bills, signed recently by Gov. Bill Ritter, minimize the effects of unemployment, establish a permanent commission to study pay equity, and ensure low-wage workers receive a tax credit when there are TABOR rebates. The Bell supported all of the measures.
