Sen. Gillibrand To Speak In Seneca Falls About Updating Workplace Policies

NY Senator Kirstin Gillibrand is in Seneca Falls on Saturday afternoon, to talk about her five-point package aimed at ensuring more middle class women workers have a fair shot at earning financial security. Gillibrand says it would do that by modernizing America’s outdated workplace policies.

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

She will speak at 2:30 p.m. at the First Presbyterian Church in Seneca Falls, where Alice Paul, a suffragist leader, argued the right to vote alone would not end discrimination based upon sex and first drafted the Equal Rights Amendment.
