Gender Workplace Issues in Arizona

Gender Workplace Issues are a Hot Topic

There are several hot topics involving gender workplace issues in Arizona. These topics are widely discussed now, more than ever, and I have some definite opinions about them. So, let’s go!

Equal Wages for Men and Woman

If a woman is doing the very same job as a man for an employer, she should be paid the very same wage. Period, end of the story, over and out. Now, that was simple, wasn’t it?

Women in Combat

One day I was standing in front of Fry’s in Prescott Valley recently, handing out brochures and talking with the people of our great state. A woman approached me and asked if I was running for office. I told her I sure am.

This wonderful lady is 30 years old, happily married, and with children. She had just signed up for the U.S. military and is going to go into airborne combat duty. I was astonished. I said, “Do you know what you are getting into?” She replied, “Yes, I do. I want to do this for my country, I love the United States of America and I want my family and my children to be proud of me.” I was astonished, in awe, in fact, overwhelmed with emotion.

The horrors of warfare are fierce for both males and females. If a person of either gender loves this country so much that he or she is willing to face those horrors: who am I to stand in the way? I cannot fault a person who loves this country so much. May God encourage her and all who serve our great nation in uniform.

Paid Sick Leave for Maternity

We need a mechanism in place to protect the hard-working people of Arizona. This should include paid maternity leave. I believe the time frame should be six months into the pregnancy and should continue for at least six weeks after birth.

Gender Workplace in Arizona

This is an issue typically pressed by those with a liberal agenda. Here is where I stand on gender workplace diversity: This subject falls under the jurisdiction of the laws in place against discrimination. Having said that, I believe that an employer has the right to choose, and should choose, the best-qualified candidate for any position. This is the best way to go for businesses and for the overall economy of the Great State of Arizona.

I know that so many of you fine people from Prescott, to Prescott Valley, to Cordes Lakes, to Black Canyon City, to Kirkland, and so many more places in Legislative District 1 are with me on these issues. Vote for Ed Cocchiolla, Republican candidate for the Arizona House of Representatives, and you will be voting for freedom in Arizona!
