PFAW continues push for Paycheck Fairness Act

If you didn’t get to make your calls yesterday in support of the Paycheck Fairness Act (H.R. 1519/S. 797), there’s still time. Please click here for more information. The number is 888-876-9527.

PFAW is supporting your efforts by sending its letter to the Senate.

The Paycheck Fairness Act sends a clear message: The wage gap is real. No employer should benefit from discriminating against employees like Lilly Ledbetter. Retaliating against employees who fight for equal pay is unacceptable. Pay equity should be the rule, not the exception. What the Paycheck Fairness Act does not do is also clear: It does not eviscerate employers’ legal rights. It does not take away their right to set their own business practices or constrain them in terms of job applicants. It does not create unfair comparisons between jobs performed or where they’re performed. It does not hurt small businesses, and it certainly does not negatively impact women.

Together, we’re sending the message that it’s time to make real progress on fair pay.

Thank you!
