Equal Work Deserves Equal Pay

    1. Sponsored by

      Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee

Rachel is right: according to the U.S. Census Bureau, women still only make 77 cents on the dollar compared to men. According to a new report, "Women’s median earnings are lower than men’s in nearly all occupations..." [IWPR, April 2012].

But Republicans are standing opposed to Fair Pay laws. House Republicans voted nearly unanimously against the Lilly Ledbetter Fact Pay Act. Just a few weeks ago, Republican Governor Scott Walker repealed Wisconsin’s Equal Pay law.

Sign the petition to help us reach 100,000 strong telling Congress to pass the Paycheck Fairness Act.

To:
U.S. House of Representatives
U.S. Senate
Equal work deserves equal pay. Congress should pass the Paycheck Fairness Act immediately.

Sincerely,
[Your name]
