Arise members have targeted the wage gap between males and females and between white and minority workers as their top legislative priority for the 2011 Regular Session of the Alabama Legislature. They are calling for a permanent Equal Pay Commission, which in my opinion would be a good thing. I don’t believe anybody can say that we have anything close to equal pay at present for those who would be affected. In addition to equal pay, their goals for 2011 are: constitutional reform, public transportation, worker savings incentives, and a moratorium on the death penalty. Two other issues – tax reform and adequate state budgets for health care, child care and other human services – are permanent priorities. It will be interesting to see how the Legislature responds on these issues.
