Gillibrand at Ithaca College Today

U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand will make an appearance at Ithaca College this afternoon to deliver a policy speech which will unveil a five-point package aimed at ensuring more middle class women workers have a fair shot at earning financial security by modernizing America’s outdated workplace policies that have failed to keep pace with the demands on the new workforce driving our economy and limits economic growth.

In a press release, Gilliband said with more dual income households than ever before, and 40 percent of women with children at home serving as sole breadwinners, when women get held back financially by systemic impediments in the workplace, the entire middle class and American economy gets held back too.

Senator Gillibrand’s American Opportunity Agenda would expand paid family medical leave, increase the minimum wage, provide universal pre-k, make quality affordable daycare accessible, and ensure equal pay for equal work.
