CREATE JOBS &
Phil Diserio understands our local economy is top priority. All West Virginia workers deserve job stability and should have the first shot at new jobs from industries that profit from resources within our great state.
FIGHT FOR FAIR PAY
Recent changes in state laws have stripped workers of their right to negotiate with employers. These changes could significantly drive down wages and health benefits. We need to take the necessary actions to ensure safer work environments and better pay.
LOOK OUT FOR WORKING FAMILIES
While CEO wages continue to rise, the pay scale for the average worker has not increased and many are even earning less, thereby causing numerous families to struggle. We must reinstate the legislation that helps prevent out-of-state workers from taking West Virginia jobs and guarantee fair pay for public projects.
TAKE ON THE DRUG EPIDEMIC
It’s no secret that opioid and drug abuse has hit our region hard. Phil believes we need to increase funding for treatment and rehabilitation programs, make these programs more accessible to individuals in need, and be tougher on those who contribute to this epidemic that is harming our local communities.
PROTECT THE RIGHTS OF SENIORS
Being raised in Brooke County, we were taught to respect our parents and grandparents. As this aging population grows, our state needs to do everything it can to preserve benefits, services, and care programs for our seniors.
HELP OUR VETERANS
We owe an overwhelming debt of gratitude to the brave men and women who served our country. Phil is committed to protecting benefits for our veterans, while also improving the necessary programs that will help them succeed here at home in West Virginia.
