Nancy Pelosi Calls for ‘Livable Wage’ and More Paid Sick Leave
Sounds like communist propaganda.
Check it out:
U.S. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi told a packed crowd of mostly Democrat women in Houston that she is on a crusade to increase minimum wage, achieve paycheck fairness, establish more paid sick leave and increase the availability of child care, especially for sick children. Pelosi and two other Democrat women Members of Congress were speaking on a panel titled, “When Women Succeed, America Succeeds.”
For women to succeed, Pelosi said the government must do three things: increase the minimum wage; establish a balance between responsibilities at work and at home; and, establish more robust early childhood learning programs and day care.
Houston Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee provided more specifics in her statements, demanding an increase in the minimum wage to $10.10 per hour and child day care that is 24/7, 365 days per year. Lee did not stop there with opening the federal checkbook. She said we must provide paid time off for individuals under an expanded employee medical leave program.
