Remarks by Vice President Harris at the APEC Women’s Economic Participation in the Industries of the Future Meeting | San Francisco, CA

And when it comes to women in the workplace, the President and I know that organizing is critical to empowerment.  And to that end, I am pleased to announce that just last week in Las Vegas 35,000 members of the local culinary union — the vast majority women and women of color and immigrant women — led by a Latina, successfully negotiated for better benefits, stronger workforce and workplace safety protections, and the largest pay raise in their history.  (Applause.)  Yes.  So, yes, let us applaud their work as an important milestone in the long march toward progress.
