Dr. Linda Jack is running for State House District 36 in Pasco County.
“I support equal pay for equal work and will support bipartisan ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment. Women make 87 cents to every dollar a man makes in Florida for having the same qualifications and doing the same job, which is clearly discrimination. This isn’t just a women’s issue, it affects all of us – hardworking families, young adults, single moms and many others in our diverse workforce.
Raising the minimum wage should be done sensibly and in cooperation with business owners. It should be tied to the cost of living in our area and introduced gradually to give businesses time to adjust. Raising the wage to a livable standard would be good for all of us and the economy as a whole, especially here in Pasco where we have the highest percentage of low-income earners of any county in Florida. “
