Support the Paycheck Fairness Act
The gender wage gap leads to a loss of some $400,000 over the course of a working woman’s career. For women of color, that loss is even steeper.
Read that again: $400,000.
The Paycheck Fairness Act would help close the wage gap in a few different ways by:
- Making it unlawful to prohibit employees from talking about their wages.
- Increasing penalties for violating the equal pay provision.
- Directing the Department of Labor to provide trainings for negotiating compensation and working conditions.
It’s time. Women should get equal pay for equal work.
If you agree, take two minutes to call your senators and representative. Tell them to vote YES on the Paycheck Fairness Act.
