Working Women "Stir The Pot" On Political Issues In AFL-CIO Voter Mobilization

By Doug Cunningham

Working women coast to coast today will be stirring the pot on vital political issues like health care and retirement security in a massive AFL-CIO sponsored all-women voter mobilization. Meagan Jeronimo of Houston is co-chair of the event.

: "We thought if we got women together to hear what each other had to say it would energize them and motivate them to go to the polls and let our legislators know that these are the issues that matter to us. We want all women to come out and talk about the issues that impact them. And I think the majority of women that are participating will not be union members."

Rose Pelles is the AFL-CIOs Director of Civil, Human and Womens Rights

: "Women have great concerns and they're basic concerns, bread and butter concerns about wages, about you know, how to finance their children's educations, their issues are about good jobs, about health care,
about retirement security. That's what women care about in this country. And those are the issues that we hope will drive women to the vote."
