As efforts to close the wage gap continue, efforts are underway on Capitol Hill, too. KDKA’s John Shumway spoke to a Pennsylvania congressman about the plan

HEATHER ABRAHAM: During this Month of Women’s History, efforts will be made to help mothers displaced from work to stay home and care for families. A multitude of celebrities are now backing the Marshall Plan for moms it recognizes efforts to place a home order and makes up for it for the first time john shumway is here to explain you know john you often hear mothers say it’s a ungrateful job but someone has to do right?

JOHN SHUMWAY: Yeah absolutely, and historically they were never paid for it, the number that really hits the headlines is 2$ 400 a month, about $ 600 a week But the journey goes on Congressman Madeleine Dean says it was necessary even before the pandemic

MADELEINE DEAN: Before the pandemic, I saw an urgent need for a Marshall Plan for mothers, but now with the pandemic, the need is only being revealed even more

Women have disproportionately lost their jobs, their jobs and their livelihood And so we definitely need some kind of Marshall Plan for mothers in our society. I love that term for it

JOHN SHUMWAY: From the suburb of Philly, Congressman Dean tells me that mom’s help has to start with childcare

MADELEINE DEAN: It would include universal childcare I think this will be the first step towards equality for women in terms of their careers and for their families

JOHN SHUMWAY: And then there’s the idea of ​​a monthly paycheck for mom, up to 2$ 400

MADELEINE DEAN: It’s not easy to raise a family on a single salary, so is that a realistic option? Sure it should be regular compensation, or at least disaster relief for families. That’s what we have to do in this economic recession

JOHN SHUMWAY: Yeah, how fast is unknown. And she says a minimum wage of $ 15 is also an important part of the Marshall Plan

There are several things here, Heather – the need to get family help and the need to reassure women that they can get back to the workforce they evicted during the pandemic and to a livable wage, which is more closely aligned with what men earn

HEATHER ABRAHAM: All very, very important, John. I’m so glad you’re talking about this today, but we know these are not new topics

JOHN SHUMWAY: No. You certainly are not, but the difference here is numbers. The pandemic has marginalized so many women and has put the spotlight on this urgent need to address childcare issues. It really costs families that it Given the legislature is right, and it’s a bit hard to ignore, we’ll see what to do with it

HEATHER ABRAHAM: I know this has been such a stressful year for so many of my mom friends going through this. So John, I’m glad you talked about it today
