During the recent 18th annual Hat Luncheon sponsored by the Wisconsin African American Women’s Ltd. at its center on Vliet Street, we asked four participants this question of the week:
“What is your opinion regarding equal pay for equal work for women?”
Gershia Coggs: “It is overdue! We have been looked over for too long. We must demand equal pay now!”
Bobbie Lathan: “If men and women are working in the same position, they should get the same pay.”
Helen Harris: “I definitely believe that women deserve equal pay for equal work. If you can do the job, you deserve the pay. This is a civil rights issue. We want to go forward, not backward.”
