The Denver Airport has a problem.

The publicly-owned Denver Airport (DIA) generates over $26 billion annually for our economy and is growing rapidly, but the working people who hep generate this record-breaking growth have been left behind.

With housing costs skyrocketing, a worker making the current minimum wage of $10.20 would have to work 85 hours a week to rent a 1-bedroom apartment in Denver. Even some longtime airport employees at companies like United Airlines make less than $12 an hour after over 20 years on the job.

Our ballot measure is an opportunity to lift up thousands of families in our communities.
