This Morning at the White House...

July 20, 2010 | Work and Family | Workplace Fairness

They'll be talking about you and me, when Vice President Biden hosts an event focusing on some of the issues that matter most to women's economic security: equal pay and work-family policies.

These issues have long been a top priority for working women, and now we finally have an Administration that's making them a priority, too.

The National Partnership will be there to hear first-hand about the work of the President's Equal Pay Enforcement Task Force, which is defending our right to fair pay. We'll learn about the Administration's new plan for a nationwide conversation to improve work-family balance for all Americans - and we'll share that information with you.

With more women in the workforce than ever, our caregiving responsibilities growing, and families relying on women's wages more than ever, it's about time.

We'll report back on this blog after the event. To join it virtually, tune in today at 10:45 a.m. to http://www.whitehouse.gov/live.
