Economic rat race is the prime destroyer of families
Tragically, far too many Minnesotans are being forced to work menial jobs, in substandard conditions, for lousy wages, and with no benefits or security. Many are forced to work two or more of these jobs, trying to survive financially.
Too many working parents have too little time for their family and community activities. Those who profess concern for the American family should realize that the economic rat race is the prime destroyer of families.

Dayton scores 0% by the Christian Coalition on family issues
The Christian Coalition was founded in 1989 by Dr. Pat Robertson to give Christians a voice in government. We represent millions of people of faith and enable them to have a strong, unified voice in the conversation we call democracy.
Our Five-Fold Mission: Our ratings are based on the votes the organization considered most important; the numbers reflect the percentage of time the representative voted the organization's preferred position.
