Priority: Wages

Gov. Beshear is focused on increasing economic opportunity for all Kentucky families, creating good-paying jobs across the Commonwealth, and not just increasing corporate profits. For far too many families, the bills continue to go up while incomes are stagnant.

With every decision he makes, he will build an economy that works for all of us by investing in industries where Kentucky can be an international leader, starting with agriculture technology, and by investing in infrastructure, workforce training, education and more.

Since taking office, Gov. Beshear has kept that promise. In his first 75 days, he announced more than $274 million in planned investments and the addition of 545 full-time jobs in advanced manufacturing, the food and beverage industry and software and IT services. These are not just numbers, they are opportunities for our hard-working families.

Gov. Beshear has announced new jobs in Northern, Eastern, Western and Central Kentucky, with those in Bowling Green offering $31 per hour, health care and a pension, benefits that coincide with his priorities as governor.

Every day, Gov. Beshear fights for economic opportunity for every Kentucky family, one job at a time.
