Women on the plant floor and in the C-Suite
So many barriers stand in the way of women in the workplace.
Unequal pay. Discrimination. Expensive and scarce child care options. Lack of training opportunities. A general bias against women in jobs ranging from the plant floor to the C-Suite.
I’ve spent my career fighting to eradicate these barriers to women’s success in the workplace. That’s why I’m proud to have earned the sole endorsement of The Mother PAC – Oregon’s leading voice for women and families. Share on Facebook!
Here in Oregon, we’re making remarkable progress. In 2009, we passed a law to help women and minorities join the construction workforce. We did it by offering apprenticeship programs and opportunities to complete training.
Now Oregon has a record high rate of women working construction jobs – twice the national average.
As Labor Commissioner, I’ve defended women that are discriminated against, and fought to make sure that women have access to living-wage jobs.
As Secretary of State, you can count on me to keep fighting for the well-being of working moms and families.
