RIO+20 FAIRNESS IN EMPLOYMENT

I HAVE WORKED AND VOLUNTEERED SINCE HIGH SCHOOL AND ALSO PERSUED HIGHER EDUCATION. I FIND THAT EVEN WITH A STRONG PORTFOLIO IT IS DIFFICULT TO FIND A GOOD PAYING JOB. I MOST OF THE TIME WORK FOR NO PAY DUE TO THE ECONOMY, THE WORK IS VALUABLE AND NEEDS TO BE DONE BUT NO ONE IS HIRING SOMEONE WITH MY SKILLS. MOST JOBS TODAY ARE TRADES AND INDUSTRY.
I FEEL IT IS IMPORTANT THAT WOMEN WHO HAVE CONTRIBUTED GET CHANCES AT GOOD JOBS AND GREEN JOBS THAT DO NOT DESTROY OUR ENVIRONMENT.

I AM OLDER AND FEEL IT IS IMPORTANT THAT I CAN WORK AS LONG AS I WANT AND NOT BE FORCED INTO RETIREMENT WHEN I WOULD RATHER WORK AND KEEP MY SKILLS UP.
I HAVE RAISED A FAMILY, WORKED , GONE TO UNIVERSITY, VOLUNTEERED AND YET THERE ARE NO JOBS FOR A LOT OF WOMEN LIKE ME. WE DO NOT GET SOCIAL SECURITY EITHER FOR RAISING A FAMILY.
A STRONG AND HEALTHY SOCIETY EVOLVES TO IDEAS THAT INCLUDE EVERYONE AND DO NOT DISCRIMINATE. WE NEED AFFORDABLE HOUSING, EDUCATION, HEALTH CARE AND GOOD JOBS AND ACCESS TO JUSTICE.

IT IS IMPORTANT TO HAVE A VALUE SYTEM THAT WORKS IN ALL VENUES
