Elizabeth talked about health care reform & JPMorgan’s potential $9 billion trading loss on the Bill Press Show.
Elizabeth visited the drill team at Bellamy Middle School in Chicopee. The Springfield Republican was there to see it. (You may need to adjust the volume on your computer - these girls are loud!)
Scott Brown just voted with the Republican Party against the Paycheck Fairness Act, legislation to decrease the gender wage gap. With his vote, Scott Brown is telling the women of Massachusetts he thinks it’s okay that they continue to earn less than men with the same education doing the same work.
Across the nation, women earn 77 cents for every dollar a man earns, and over their careers, that means they take home hundreds of thousands of dollars less than men. Here in Massachusetts, women earn 81 cents for every dollar a man earns. While that’s better than the national average, that’s not good enough. Women deserve equal pay for equal work – especially now, when women are the sole breadwinner or the co-breadwinner of so many families.
