August 26th, 1971 was established as Women's Equality Day to commemorate the passage of the 19th amendment to the United States Constitution, which granted women the right to vote.
This is also the date we recognize the continuing efforts of women to achieve full equality. We've come a long way since their righteous struggle to pass the 19th amendment back in 1919, but we still have a long way to go.
It was just late last week that the Ricketts' were accused of cutting the hours of the grounds crew of their pro-baseball team, the Chicago Cubs, to avoid complying with a federal law and save their own billionaire family a few bucks. This "cost saving" measure resulted in a three hour game delay due to rain because there weren't enough employees on hand to cover the field with a tarp.
One of the first major efforts I became a part of on the campaign, was a movement to put a minimum wage increase on the ballot in November. Going door-to-door and speaking with hard-working, everyday folks, I learned raising the minimum wage means more than just extra money for college students.

I first met Chuck in April at a fish fry.
I didn’t know who he was, but noticed that he was making the rounds picking up trash and chatting with people at each table.

The six Republican candidates running for Governor just got done with another primary debate, and all we heard was more of the same.
More of the same failed policies we have endured for the last ten years, like lowering taxes on the top earners and shifting them on to average, hard-working Nebraska families. More of the same short-term fixes to the long-term challenges we must confront in our prisons, in funding for education, and in the Department of Health and Human Services. And more of the same irresponsible political bickering that has taken the place of meaningful conversations about much-needed solutions for Nebraskans.Read more
