Women workers’ campaign in New York, USA


This video from the USA is called North Carolina Paid Sick Days Campaign Press Conference.

Campaign for Paid Sick Days in New York Aims to Support Working Women. Yana Kunichoff, Truthout in the USA: “The lack of paid sick days affects all working people who are forced to ignore sore throats and runny noses for fear of being fired, but it disproportionately affects women. Concentrated in industries like caregiving and food service, and most likely to have to stay home if a child is ill, women also risk the most economically when forced to take an unplanned and unpaid sick day”: here.

Ladydrawers | Adventure-Style Living: How Gender Affects the Money Comics Creators Make. Anne Elizabeth Moore, Nicole Boyett and Alex Dahm, Truthout in the USA: “Last month, we presented some cold, hard facts about gender inequity in comics, and here’s the deal: women, trans folk and non-binary gender creators make up 46 percent of the industry – but only get about 10 percent of the slots available for publishing work. If you’re lucky enough to get that work published, the money adds up fast! But if it doesn’t: you might be in for a dangerous trek”: here.
