If you are a working woman, are you worried about finding a job that pays your bills and provides benefits? Or concerned about the rising cost of health care? Maybe you’re frustrated you can’t find time to do your job and spend time with your family. Or are you tired of working as hard as your male counterparts and not getting paid as much?

The AFL-CIO and Working America’s just-launched online 2008 Ask a Working Woman survey enables you to share workplace concerns about issues such as equal pay and stronger family and medical leave laws. Click here to take the survey and here to share it with other working women.

In this critical election year, the survey results are a chance to be heard by those with the power to make changes—members of Congress, state and local officials and presidential candidates.

The more responses, the more weight the survey will carry, so after you fill it out, forward it to friends and tell everyone in your e-mail address book.

More than 22,000 women took part in the AFL-CIO 2006 Ask a Working Woman survey—with the majority saying they were worried about such fundamental economic issues as paying for health care, not having retirement security and pay not keeping up with the cost of living. This year, the Ask a Working Woman survey runs through June 20. Take a minute to take it now.
