Gore Pledges Administration’s Support for Working Women

U.S. Vice President Al Gore promised working women “labor rights, civil rights and human rights” in a speech delivered to an AFL-CIO conference this Saturday. “We can’t be satisfied until the notion of equal pay for equal work is not just a theory but a reality in the lives of working women,” Gore said. The three-day conference, a project of the AFL-CIO’s Working Women’s Department, concerned major issues facing working women and their families and drew more than 1,700 attendees. Women discussed ways to bring change, both on the job and in their communities.
