Today is Equal Pay Day. It’s been 51 years since President Kennedy signed the Equal Pay Act. That was a great first step -- but the average American woman still loses out on $400,000 over her career. That’s unacceptable.
The Senate is set to vote on the Paycheck Fairness Act -- a bill that would strengthen and modernize Kennedy’s accomplishment. Meanwhile Republicans continue to stand in the way, and women continue to earn 23 cents less for every dollar that their male counterparts earn.
That’s why we need as many supporters as we can to join us in the fight to pass the Paycheck Fairness Act. Will you step up and help make sure that women receive equal pay for equal work?
