    April 8, 2014 - No Comments

    Equal Pay Day signifies how far into 2014 women have had to work to catch up with men’s earnings in 2013. In 2014 women make up about half our workforce but still are paid only 77 cents for every dollar paid to men and there has been no improvement for 10 years. This must change. The Coalition of Labor Union Women has been working with our allies to urge passage of the Paycheck Fairness ...

    Now that open enrollment under the Affordable Care Act is over for this year, healthcare consumers can begin to put their insurance policies to work. For many, it may be a challenge. A year ago, Norm Wilkinson, 61, retired after 35 years as a Teamster and signed on to a retiree health plan. He figured he'd enjoy the same comprehensive coverage he'd had for years, but soon learned that prescript...

    April 2, 2014 - No Comments

    Editorial from Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson, Representing Senate District 19 Women’s History Month is an opportunity not just to reflect on how far we’ve come but to look at how far we have to go and check whether we are making progress. Unfortunately, women’s progress is stuck in second gear. The wage gap remains – in fact, it widened in California 2005 to 2012, dropping from 90 to...

    March 27, 2014 - No Comments

    Legislation that would sharply increase California's minimum wage and index it to inflation cleared its first legislative hurdle Wednesday. It's doubtful, however, whether Gov. Jerry Brown would sign another minimum wage boost a year after he and the Legislature enacted an increase. The 2013 legislation raises the minimum wage, now $8 per hour, to $9 on July 1, then to $10 in 2016. Brown sig...

    March 25, 2014 - No Comments

    Two questions: How far is the governor willing to go to violate the rights of the disabled—and how much taxpayer money will be needed to subsidize an increase of poverty-stricken Californians? The answers are not good for the disabled or for taxpayers. In January, Governor Jerry Brown released his budget proposal that, for the most part, was beneficial to the state’s programs and employe...

    In March, we celebrate the proud and substantial history women have had in the labor movement. Most of what is safe and good in the work place now is the result of their hard work. This month, I ask each of you to discover how and in what way the women in your own families contributed to the movement. Please e-mail me at president@cuhw.org because I’m very interested in all homecare providers s...
