Stephanie Murphy on Civil Rights
To combat this inequity, Stephanie will lead efforts to pass the bipartisan Paycheck Fairness Act in Congress, which would strengthen the Equal Pay Act and establish stronger workplace protections for women. Stephanie also supports raising the minimum wage to a livable wage as women make up 2/3 of minimum wage workers.
We must protect the rights of employees to collectively bargain, and we must raise the minimum wage to a livable wage because if you work 40 hours a week, you shouldn't be living in poverty. Finally, it's time to pass paid family and medical leave because no American should ever be forced to choose between taking care of their child, their own health or a sick relative and their job.
The Christian Coalition Voter Guide inferred whether candidates agree or disagree with the statement, 'Make sexual preference a protected minority status under civil rights laws' The Christian Coalition notes, "You can help make sure that voters have the facts BEFORE they cast their votes. We have surveyed candidates in the most competitive congressional races on the issues that are important to conservatives."
