Listen to National Executive Director Linda Meric on WomensRadio speak about 9to5’s history and our future.
With the goal of boosting civic participation and exercising Constitutional rights, grassroots groups throughout the country spent Tuesday meeting face-to-face with eligible people — and the public in general — to elevate awareness about “National Voter Registration Day.”
When the 40-year-old organization 9to5—subtitled “Winning Justice for Working Women”—celebrates its “ruby” anniversary at several upcoming events, it will recharge itself for the battles ahead. But it’s also a time to pat itself on the back for what it’s achieved since 1973 on behalf of U.S. women workers.
On the eve of our 40th anniversary celebrations held in Atlanta, Denver, Los Angeles and Milwaukee, we must recommit ourselves to a renewed effort to fight for good jobs and equal opportunity that all of us need to contribute to overall stability for families, communities and a growing economy. And that time is now — yes we can!
Linda Meric, 9to5’s national executive director, was one of 115 arrested on Independence Avenue, protesting the failure of Congress to act on common sense immigration reform that provides a pathway to citizenship and values women.
In The Huffington Post, 9to5’s National Executive Director shares why she was arrested on Thursday, September 12, 2013, in Washington, D.C. In a symbolic gesture, her act of civil disobedience was meant to support and honor the countless acts of courage that immigrant women engage in every day out of love for their families and communities.
Read 9to5 National Executive Director Linda Meric’s op-ed on the need for family and medical leave insurance; a simple common-sense solution that’s good for working families, local businesses and the economy.
If we want people to be responsible for the health and well-being of their families, in this failing economy, everyone’s focus should be on supporting that — not taking away commonsense laws that should never be in question. Workers need Wisconsin’s Family and Medical Leave Act.
