We Texans have a nationwide reputation, if not worldwide, for about bragging Texas. Unfortunately, there are some areas where our state leads that we do not, and should not, be bragging about. These areas need legislative and leadership intervention.

Texas leads in the number of low paid workers. While we boast about the spectacular growth, or the Texas miracle, mainly stemming from our oil industry, Texas still lags the nation in pay for people who live by the sweat of their brow.
