INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana Democratic Party Chairman John Zody issued the following statement on Organization Day.
“Indiana ranks in the bottom 10 nationally for educational attainment, an indicator of workforce preparedness. It’s been that way for more than a decade. Wage growth is just as dismal. It’s clear our current trajectory won’t put Hoosiers on the fast-track toward bigger paychecks and better skills, yet Governor Holcomb and Statehouse Republicans appear intent to tinker rather than reform. Holcomb and Republicans might be comfortable with the status quo, but big problems call for bold solutions. More of the same won’t cut it. Hoosiers won’t wait another decade for higher wages and better skills. Session is rapidly approaching. Statehouse Democrats are already releasing policy details focused on lifting up hardworking Hoosiers. If Statehouse Republicans aren’t leading with big ideas, how exactly are they earning their taxpayer-funded salaries?”
