Pay Equity & Discrimination — IWPR

http://www.iwpr.org/initiatives/pay-equity-and-discrimination

What can we do in America as women banding together to get equal pay for equal work?
Men get $1.00 and women get 78 cents for the same work and job.
This is simply a civil rights case.
Can’t we as people simply make this right?
The few cents difference in pay will nor kill any employer and will reinforce a positive work force showing equality and good will towards all.

It would be a Triple Win because the job performance would increase simply based on women workers knowing they are appreciated and valued.

I would LOVE to see disabled people given jobs and opportunities based on their abilities instead of being castigated because they are simply different too.
The ADA has done wonders but I have been thrown out of the running of countless jobs only because I cannot drive due to having epilepsy. Discrimination exists and we can make things right if we only want to.

What a gift of grace to be able to take the chaos from within and from it create some semblence of order. – Katherine Paterson

I am always finding new and fresh quotes and incredible insights into the human persona and how to live a better, fuller life from one of my favorite books entitled “Simple Abundance: A Daybook of Comfort and Joy” by Sarah Ban Breathnach.

That was one of them on the page titled “Order Within” on May 19.

Sarah Breathnach speaks of not only creating order in our homes but “seeking order within.”

How I would love to meet this lady one day. She is such a powerhouse of wisdom and seeing life through new and healthy perspectives.

I wasn’t planning on this being a book review, but in case you would like to track it down at your local library or book store, here is the information for your librarian to track it down for you.

Study after study has documented that when women have the opportunity to start businesses, own land, and receive credit…entire economies expand. – Hilary Clinton

Women have come a long way since the 60’s when I was a kid and they were still making and pouring coffee for their overpaid male bosses. That used to be written into job descriptions, but now women are making headway in what used to be male dominated fields like engineering, science and the medical fields.

In time I hope to see women get dollar for dollar the same pay for the same job. If they aren’t, it is a crime and just as unfair as being treated differently because of the color of one’s skin or what religious preference one believes.

I bet a woman will find the cure for cancer and I would love to see a woman president. Women give birth and tend to communicate rather than blow up chunks of a country killing children and mothers to hit one target.

The more chances a woman has to be educated, the more she will succeed in life in every way. Self esteem grows in direct proportion to education level too.

I don’t want to see any women have to be dependant on another for survival.
Being financially independent should be a goal of every woman and every parent should teach their daughters they can do anything they aspire to.

My after forty face felt far more comfortable than anything I lived with previoulsy. Self-confidence was a powerful beauty-potion; I looked better because I felt better. Failure and grief as well as success and love had served me well. Finally, I was tapping into that most hard-won of youth dews: WISDOM. – Nancy Collins

What awesome words Nancy Collins wrote here in my book written by Sarah Ban Breathnach called “Simple Abundance”.

I can say I agree wholeheartedly with Ms. Collins in that I like the me I am far more than the me I was as a child or a teen or even a newly wed. Every stage of my life was completely different but as my life has gone on my health has improved dramatically and the medicine I take for epilepsy works the best of any ever prescribed and I think better and am able to do so much more.

I am also more confident, knowledgable and know about so many more things and therefore the world looks different to me now at 52 years young. It is as though I saw the world through a keyhole and only saw a fraction of what was to come in the years ahead and as the years went on I found the key and opened the door!

It is a spiritual journey day-by-day in calendar format through the year, giving you ideas of what things to do as the seasons change, you change your ideas to newer, positive ones.

I found this great book again at a used book store I go to called BookOff for $1!
