|“If I were President,… I’d start paying women a living wage for doing the work we are already doing—childraising and housekeeping. And the welfare crisis would be over. Just like that. Housewives would be getting wages, too.” Johnnie Tillman, National Welfare Rights Organization||“Women are the primary caregivers everywhere in the world…, Every worker is entitled to a living wage, but most carers, starting with mothers, don’t get wages and aren’t considered workers.” From the International Petition for a Living Wage for Mothers and Other Caregivers|
