So I realize that my choice to copy and paste my notes from last night's tele-town hall was a bit lazy, but rest assured, I plan to summarize the main points of what was discussed. I still recommend you skim through my notes for a more comprehensive view of what went down.
Essentially, women want to enact a Fair Pay Act that doesn't just give employees the right to challenge a discriminatory paycheck, but ensures that no one is discriminated against because of race or sex ever again.
Women also want to enact a National Paid Leave Act that would give employees paid time off to take care of their sick children and parents without having to forfeit vital paychecks.
Another item on the agenda, an item on most liberal, progressive agendas, is to increase the minimum wage. Two out of three minimum wage employees are women.
Finally, paid maternity and paternity leave is on the agenda so that raising a family does not inhibit your ability and right to have a career.
I agree with all of these ideas, and I hope to keep track of their progress and see them enacted in the near future.
