He said that although the number of jobs has increased, the quality of the jobs still remains in question. Zamarripa discussed how there are thousands of jobs that do not provide adequate pay or benefits to their employees, forcing many working Americans to have to pick up more than one job. He then went on to talk about lost overtime wages and retirement savings, and how it impacts American workers. Lastly, he spoke about Ohioans with pre-existing conditions and how they could lose protections if the Affordable Care Act is repealed.
