Unemployment numbers indicate Oregon women are disproportionately affected by the pandemic

Every day Senate Republicans refuse to pass a meaningful stimulus bill, women are forced to give up their careers.

Generations of progress is on the line.

Thousands of Oregonians have lost their jobs or been forced to reduce their hours due to COVID-19 but unemployment numbers indicate the burden of income loss disproportionately falls on women. "Since the pandemic-related closures started in Oregon, we’ve seen that women’s unemployment ra...

Trump Promised Seniors Drug Discount Cards. They May Be Illegal.

These discount cards do nothing to actually lower prescription prices and are a legally dubious attempt by the President to distract from his years of sabotaging health care.

A proposal announced by President Trump last month was to send older Americans $200 discount cards to offset prescription costs. It’s not going to happen before the election, and maybe not ever.

This is a make-or-break moment for so many child care providers and working parents. Senate Republicans need to join us in passing the Child Care for Economic Recovery Act.
