Women Deserve Equal Pay



In the next few weeks, we expect a vote on the Paycheck Fairness Act. The vote could come at any moment, so we need you to contact your Senators today. Please tell your Senators to show their support for equal pay by co-sponsoring the Paycheck Fairness Act.

What would the Paycheck Fairness Act do? The Paycheck Fairness Act would deter wage discrimination by closing loopholes in the Equal Pay Act and barring retaliation against workers who disclose their own wages to co-workers. Without this bill, employers can penalize and even fire employees for talking about their salaries. This egregious practice leaves workers in the dark, preventing them from ever finding out about pay discrimination in the workplace.

Please take 2 minutes to tell your Senators to support equal pay by co-sponsoring the Paycheck Fairness Act. The last time the Senate voted on the Paycheck Fairness Act it fell just a few votes short of moving forward.

With a vote expected in the coming weeks, we need to make sure your Senators hear from you now. hanks for taking action today.

From our friends at 9 to 5.
