CATHERINE CORTEZ-MASTO:

Equal Pay

“Our country still has a long way to go in ensuring paycheck fairness for middle-class families. This isn’t just a women’s issue; it’s an economic issue for Nevadans who are struggling to feed their families and keep a roof over their heads. We cannot achieve real economic fairness for the middle class if Nevada families aren’t earning a fair day’s wage for a fair day’s work.

It is time for politicians in Washington to stop the partisan games and pass real equal-pay-for-equal-work legislation that will level the playing field for working families suffering from pay discrimination. As Attorney General, I worked to protect Nevada’s middle-class families, and if elected to the United States Senate, I will continue to do so by fighting to achieve paycheck fairness.”

“Cortez Masto told the Women’s Chamber that in the Senate, she will work with both parties to help small businesses cut red tape, pass tax credits for working families, and pass paid family and sick leave.”

Minimum Wage

“‘As the daughter of a Teamster, I’m proud to earn the endorsement of the thousands of SEIU members in Nevada,’ said Cortez Masto…'[I]n the Senate I will work with both Parties to solve problems and raise the minimum wage so Nevada families can live off the wages they earn.”
