Recently Linda and Allan Jamail visited with Democratic Party Presidential Nominee Hillary Clinton during her Houston visit.

The Jamails, both Texas Democratic Party Executive Committee members, were part of a small private gathering of Clinton supporters committed to the historical presidential candidacy of Hillary as the first female presidential candidate of a major political party in the United States.

Allan Jamail said, “I was happy to see at the event so many Republicans joining to help Hillary in her election contest with Donald Trump, the Republican’s nominee.”

Hillary pledged to raise wages for the lowest-paid jobs and strengthen equal pay protections for women. She knocked Trump who opposes the Paycheck Fairness Act over fears that it could make it easier to sue corporations over allegations of pay inequity.

“What century are they living in?” she said. “But thankfully, the American people know the truth, and the truth is when a woman is short-changed, the entire family is short-changed.”

She said, “We’re going to have to stand up to people who want to keep the deck stacked in favor of those at the top,” pointing out Donald Trump says wages is too high now.

Hillary Clinton as Senator introduced the Paycheck Fairness Act in 2005 and 2007. Clinton noted that “pay discrimination continues to result in women earning less than men for performing the same job.”
