Pennsylvania for Change endorses Joe Sestak for US Senate representing the people of Pennsylvania.
Joe is a supporter of gender equality.
Joe Sestak believes in building better lives and futures for working families – particularly America’s women. Today, women earn only 77 cents for every dollar that men earn and 12 percent of women are their family’s main wage earner. To ensure the opportunity for a more secure future for women and their families, Joe believes we need to ensure that women are not only provided fair wages, but also benefits that are based on their performance; equal rights to challenge unfair practices, secure health and safety – including the right to choose – and skill training in fields that are underrepresented by women; and secure retirements and pensions that guarantee their independence and economic security in the coming years.
He also supports a public option health care plan. When Joe Sestak retired from the Navy, he was offered many positions working for the military complex and he turned down these high paying jobs to run for Congress because he believes that it is his turn to give back to the American people.
