Washington, DC , August 25, 2014 (Newswire.com) - “The U.S. Women’s Chamber of Commerce ( http://www.uswcc.org ) is proud to announce the endorsement of Debbie Wasserman Schultz in the race for Florida’s 23rd Congressional District,” stated Margot Dorfman, CEO. “U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz exemplifies smart, principled leadership for strong American economic values.”
“Debbie Wasserman Schultz is a champion of women’s economic priorities, receiving a one-hundred percent rating from the U.S. Women’s Chamber of Commerce,” continues Dorfman. “Wasserman Schultz supports a positive economic environment for women workers and business owners, American job creation, fair pay, a fair minimum-wage, family-friendly workplaces, access to affordable/quality healthcare and birth control, tax policies that support a vibrant middle class and access to capital and federal contracts for women-owned firms,” continues Dorfman.
Rep. Wasserman Schultz is committed to fighting for policy solutions that provide women with equal pay for equal work,” adds Dorfman. “She knows raising the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour is good for families, good for businesses and good for the American economy. Wasserman Shultz also understands how vital comprehensive contraceptive coverage is for women’s health and economic security,” continues Dorfman. “And, as a mother of three, she supports family-friendly workplace policies – making sure that workplace policies work for everyone.”
“Rep. Wasserman Shultz is also committed to continuing to fight in Congress to make sure the principle of supporting women and minority small business owners is reflected in federal policy and actions,” adds Dorfman.
“Growing the number of strong women leaders in Congress is critical to assuring that women’s economic priorities are advanced,” adds Dorfman. “American prosperity is directly linked to the economic success of women. Seventy percent of women work and seventy-two percent of mothers work. A record forty percent of all households with children under eighteen include mothers who are either the sole or primary source of income for their family. Women own more than 590,000 Florida businesses employing more than 475,000 workers,” continues Dorfman.
“Debbie Wasserman Schultz is an essential leader in Congress for women and for all Americans,” concludes Dorfman. “The U.S. Women’s Chamber of Commerce is proud to endorse her candidacy.”
