Stephanie Murphy on Civil Rights

 

 


Equal pay for equal work

It's time we put families first and treat women equally in the workplace. When a woman earns equal pay for equal work, then the entire family benefits and incomes go up. It's disgraceful that a woman in this country still only earns $.79 for every dollar a man makes.

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.

Fight to strengthen LGBTQ rights

Stephanie will stand up for all families, fighting to strengthen LGBTQ rights by passing the Equality Act. The Equality Act is a bipartisan proposal that would prohibit discrimination based on an individual's sexual orientation or gender identity in matters of employment, housing, access to public places, federal funding, credit, education and jury service. It would also prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex in federal funding and access to public places

Supports sexual preference as a protected minority status.

Murphy supports the CC survey question on GLBT rights

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."
