Obama Talks With Women

From The Obama Campaign:

Senator Barack Obama continued his straightforward conversation with New Hampshire voters today at a roundtable with working women on balancing work and family. On his nineteenth trip to New Hampshire, Obama heard from Walpole residents and employees of Burdick Chocolate about the challenges they face in meeting their personal and professional commitments, and he shared how his plan to reclaim the American Dream would help ease the strain.

"Its getting harder and harder for working women to strike that balance between tending to their careers and tending to the well-being of their loved ones," Senator Obama said. "My plan will make a real difference for working families by increasing access to child care, mandating that the minimum wage keep pace with rising prices, and expanding paid leave to meet the needs of working caregivers and parents."
