Rodney Glassman on Civil Rights

 


Protect against age, race, & gender discrimination

Among the most prevalent forms of on-the-job discrimination , age discrimination is the hardest to prove and we need to strengthen those protections. Workers in their 40s, 50s & 60s have too much to contribute to the economy. This is an issue of economic security for all Americans.

Glassman's plan would extend the same protections against racial or gender-discrimination to older Americans in the work force. It would also provide incentives to hire older workers, who are having a harder time re-entering the work force during the Bush Recession.

Rodney's plan would amend the ADEA to provide the same civil rights protections found in Title VII. We must expand it to include businesses with more than 10 employees. In addition, he plans to add protections to require job training programs available to younger employees be available to all employees.

If we establish a $2,500 tax credit for every employee hired above the age of 50 it would offset higher health care costs associated with older workers.

Women veterans earn $10K less than male vets

Both men and women veterans face frequent employment discrimination after returning to civilian life, and women earn an average of $10,000 less per year than their male counterparts. Over the last year, the unemployment rate for women veterans has nearly doubled to about 11%, and women veterans are about four times more likely to be homeless than male veterans.

As part of a broader effort to address discrimination against all veterans and military service members, the proposed Veteran Employment Discrimination Prevention (VEDP) office would provide the following services:

Same-sex couples should have all rights of married couples

Q: Do you support the proposed same-sex marriage amendment to the state constitution?

A: I oppose all forms of discrimination. Every American should be afforded the same rights, privileges and protections as every other American. Same-sex couples should have all of the same the rights and privileges that are conferred upon married couples. Government should not be able to interfere in any way with two loving people committing their lives to one another.
