McAuliffe Targets Gender-Based Discrimination in Policy Proposal
The Democratic candidate for governor in Virginia is targeting female voters with his latest policy proposal.
Thursday, Terry McAuliffe called on lawmakers to strengthen existing laws against gender based discrimination in the workplace. He's proposing raising the maximum penalty for employers 50 percent, from two times to three times the amount of wages withheld.
In response to McAulliffe's policy proposal, the Ken Cuccinelli campaign released the following statement:
"Ken is focused on his Economic Growth and Virginia Jobs Plan that creates opportunities for all Virginians. His plan will ease the burden on middle-class families and allow them to keep more of their hard-earned money and let businesses expand and create more jobs for unemployed Virginians."
