Correct the Court!

When Lilly Ledbetter discovered that she was paid much less than her male coworkers over many years, she sued her employer for pay discrimination. A jury ruled in her favor, but the Supreme Court rejected her case. The House has passed a bill to reverse the effect of the Court's decision, and now, despite a veto threat from the White House, the Senate must act!

The decision in Ledbetter v. Goodyear involved the interpretation of a federal statute—not the Constitution. That's why Congress has the authority, and the responsibility, to correct the Court's error and strengthen Americans' ability to recover wages that they have been unfairly denied.

Will you join the petition calling on congressional leaders to support legislation to correct Ledbetter v. Goodyear?
