ALBANY — A Brooklyn Democratic state Senate claimant wants to bring “if you see something, contend something” to Albany when it comes to passionate harassment.
Ross Barkan, a publisher looking to plea Republican obligatory Sen. Martin Golden, is set to betray a women’s rights bulletin that includes his oath to call out any workplace nuisance he sees in the Legislature.
“If we see any nuisance of any kind, we will immediately call it out,” Barkan said. “We know this is a major problem in all work places. But positively in the domestic area we’ve seen steady passionate nuisance scandals.”
Barkan pronounced the thought would be to report nuisance by the correct channels, but also pronounce out publicly about specific cases he sees in hopes it could vigour those looking into such cases to pierce quickly.
He argued it shouldn’t matter either the harasser is a lawmaker, staffer or anyone else.
He did credit the Legislature, which was rocked by a series of passionate nuisance and abuse scandals in new years, for holding stairs to better residence the probe. But he pronounced some-more needs to be finished to safeguard women feel protected in the domestic environment.
“If we see something I’m going to contend something and people are going to know about it,” Barkan said. “I know I’ll only be one inaugurated central up there, but we wish to do what we can to change the enlightenment — a enlightenment that can take women for postulated and oftentimes enables and tolerates passionate harassment.”
Other tools of his women’s bulletin calls for the dramatization of a state concept health caring program, doing of a statewide anathema on asking for income histories, a strengthening of the state’s termination laws, and thoroughfare of a check outlawing taste formed on gender identity.
Barkan, who so distant is the only announced Democratic claimant scheming to plea Golden, also wants to anathema punish porn, yield free prenatal and postnatal caring for all women in the state, and create a state-funded baby-box program identical to those in some other states that yield new mothers with essentials like diapers.
While Barkan criticized Golden’s record on women’s issues, the maestro Republican senator had no criticism on that or the pretender Democrat’s women’s agenda.
“Let him contend what he wants,” Golden said. “He’s going to face a primary. we don’t design he’ll get past it.”
