Gillibrand to unveil plan to update modern workplace rules

SYRACUSE, N.Y. — U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand will deliver a policy speech at Syracuse University's Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs to unveil new legislation.

She is set to unveil a five-point package called the American Opportunity Agenda. The legislation is aimed at ensuring more middle class women workers have a fair shot at earning financial security by modernizing America's workplace policies that she says have failed to keep pace with the demands on the new workforce.

The plan would expand paid family medical leave, increase the minimum wage, provide universal pre-k, make quality affordable daycare accessible, and ensure equal pay for equal work.

The announcement will take place at Syracuse University's Maxwell School of Citizenship Friday at 2 p.m.
