Speaking for Latino Caucus, Gonzalez Urges Support of Women's History Month Resolution

Tuesday, March 5, 2019

SACRAMENTO -- (March 4, 2019) -- Assemblywoman Gonzalez urged support of the #WomensHistoryMonth Resolution #HR15: "Latinas in particular in California are the lowest paid workers in the nation. We earn on average 44 cents on the dollar of our white male counterparts – that puts us at the bottom," Lorena Gonzalez said. "We are the only demographic to never hold a statewide position in California despite being 20 percent of the population. It's enheartening to look around this room and see so many women being honored here today who are Latinas, but we know we have a long way to go and a lot of respect to demand."
