We have a Fine Homelike and i am one of the happiest people i know. Recently i dreamed about the Man i divorced 20 years ago. We were married briefly and had no children. I had barely thought of him All these years but after that dream i had an uncontrollable impulse to phone him Long distance to find out How his life had gone. He was easy to locate. I Learned he has a Good marriage and five teenagers. Here a the problem i have a progressive Case of glaucoma. In a few years i May be sightless. I want to take a Cross country trip to see my sex husband and his Ann Landers says family while i still have my eyes. My husband says if i go i bother to come Back.

Mrs. Harold Wayne Grubb equal pay for equal work la Federal agencies exerting Power following is the second of a three part series on equal employment rights for women. By Edward j. Doherty women a news service new York there is Good reason Why Federal agencies Are putting so much Effort now into wiping out sex discrimination in employment they have a degree of clout that did no to exist two years ago and the need for enforcement is great. By 1972, four measures were taken to Sharpen the jaws of the Legal traps the government can Spring on employers practising sex discrimination. One measure outlawed discrimination by hundreds of thousands of Federal contractors and provided goals and timetables for the employment of women. The higher education act banned discrimination against women in College admissions. The equal pay act Long on the books was amended to take in administrative and management positions. And the equal employment Opportunity commission Leoc was Given enforcement Powers through the courts even As its jurisdiction was extended to schools and local and state government employees. Each measure helped fashion what was Little More than a pious declaration of intent into a powerful instrument of enforcement. The Leoc began Honing its talons. By May this year it had 280 lawyers on its payroll in five litigation centers a the number will Rise to 300 a and All Are engaged in enforcement. In addition the Leoc collaborates with the departments of labor and Justice and to some extent can count on their resources to prosecute Job discrimination complaints. Labors office of Federal contract compliance alone has 900 compliance officers in 350 cities. Employment standards administration another of labor announced in june that it is accelerating enforcement of equal pay violations. A labor official George r. Roukis said that a regardless of their High motivation and Good qualifications women workers Are generally concentrated in Low paying dead end he set Forth some statistics that Bear out the Contention of discontented women a liberation advocates half the adult women of America work he said and nine out of to will take jobs sometime during their lives. Women on the average Are As Well educated or slightly better educated than men. A and the pay Gap has not narrowed during the years a he said. A in 1960 the average full time year round woman worker earned 60.8 per cent As much As the average Man. In 1970 she earned 59.4 per cent As other figures emphasize the unequal role women play in Industry. Ethel Bent Walsh an Leoc com missioner spelled some of them out in an address to researchers in june where men employed full time earn $5 an hour women get Only $3. In some respects women Are worse off than they used to be. In 1940, 45 per cent of All professional and technical jobs were filled by women in 1970 the percentage had declined to 39. About one third of employed women have clerical jobs. Nearly a fifth of working women with College degrees work As non professionals discouraging figures like these explain Why there is so much pressure on Federal agencies to single out and Squash sex discrimination a process that has been accelerating with the years. A series of sex discrimination cases has reached appeals courts whose rulings have helped set precedents for employers. Bessie Margolin formerly associate solicitor of labor reported there have been 25 appeals court rulings the labor department has won All but four of them. Precedents like these have lifted be oct a score in achieving voluntary agreements from employers to about 50 per cent. Each agreement that is publicized in the Media raises the pressure on other employers to Settle out of court. The Crusher came june 3 when the . Supreme court upheld the principle of equal pay for women. In a Case brought by several women employees of Corning Glass works the court washed out any remaining doubt that employers must provide not Only equal pay but fully equal provisions with men in every respect. The ruling was expected to Cost Corning Glass at least $600,000 in Back pay for women at three plants. But students of the subject agree it will eventually mean Many millions of dollars in hundreds of other companies and a revision of discriminatory policies throughout Industry. Meanwhile women have won other notable victories in cases contested by employers through the courts. A recent ruling for Northwest airlines stewardesses wiped out All sex differences in height weight pay and travel expenses and declared illegal a company Rule that of you Don t need Iti. We do. Pleat give your old i clothes furniture Etc. To help save lives. We pick up. Just phone Mi-1026 House of prayer for a Koholich a a it All Gilt Ion do out tel stewardesses could not Wear glasses. Similar cases Are pending against other airlines by Cabin attendants so that the Northwest decision has significance for All the More than 40,000 in that line of work the great majority of them women. Some of the discrimination that women have suffered comes not from employers but from unions. And Here too the heavy pressure of enforcement is being Felt.
