Big news! We’ve received word that the Senate will vote on the Paycheck Fairness Act as early as tomorrow. Join us in demanding equal pay and urge your Senator today to help pass this piece of legislation that is critical for women’s economic equality.
Women, on average, still earn only 77 cents for every dollar earned by men. And women of color make even less. Black women make just 64 cents for every dollar earned by a white man, and Latinas earn only 54 cents. The pay gap costs women about $434,000 over the course of their careers. Yet, Republican legislators blocked the Paycheck Fairness Act in April on Equal Pay Day, rejecting common-sense reform that would help close that gap.
Enough is enough. We cannot – and should not – have to wait any longer for equal pay. Take action now and email your Senator about the Paycheck Fairness Act in advance of this important vote. Together, we can take this important step toward closing the wage gap.
