The economic outlook is improving, but there's no denying that many
American women and families are still struggling to make ends meet. The
Department of Labor's Women's Bureau has stood with women workers since
1920 to help women weather recessions and depressions, and they're
standing with us today.
*Tell your senators: Oppose the heavy proposed cuts to the Women's
Bureau budget and staff!*
Since its founding almost 100 years ago, the Women's Bureau has helped
represent and protect the needs of women in the workforce. In recent
years, the Women's Bureau has worked to help women in economic
transition obtain employment in high-growth and nontraditional
occupations and improve their families' security and well-being. Yet the
Obama administration's proposed fiscal year 2013 budget slashes funding
for the Bureau by one-fifth and its full time employees by almost 40
Help lead the charge for women in the workforce: Tell your senators the
vital programs of the Women's Bureau should not be abandoned or
undermined while women still face substantial and systemic inequalities
at work. Ask her or him to oppose these steep cuts to the Bureau!
