Women’s equality

TO THE EDITOR: 1199SEIU United Healthcare Workers East has joined a coalition of 10 organizations from across the North Country.

We are working together as the New York Women’s Equality Coalition, North Country Region in vigorous support of Gov. Cuomo’s Women’s Equality Agenda.

Coalition members stand united with one another and with eight other regional groups, urging broad support of this historic agenda.

During his January State of the State address, the governor presented the Women’s Equality Agenda, a 10-point plan to break down barriers women face in the most essential areas of life.

The Women’s Equality Agenda will reduce discrimination in the workplace and in housing, improve women’s safety and well-being and ensure equal treatment under the law.

In the North Country, we value fairness. Two people doing the same job should be paid and treated equally. By passing this law, it would ensure that women receive the wages they were always entitled to. It would help struggling families in the North Country provide for their families and would provide fairness for everyone in the workplace.
