Building a Prosperous Maine: A Roadmap to Economic Security for WOmen and Their Families Signpost of Economic Security Policies

On August 26, 2014, we released a set of policy recommendations to strengthen women’s economic security. The recommendations would bring our workplace policies into the 21st century, meet working families’ basic needs, ensure that our children get a strong educational foundation and adults have the tools they need to support themselves, and make sure all Maine people have access to a full range of health care services.
