A Petition in Support of the Revitalization and Passage of the Paycheck Fairness Act in 2013

The Paycheck Fairness Act would require employers to demonstrate that any salary differences between men and women doing the same work are not gender-related. The bill would have also prohibited employers from retaliating against employees who share salary information with their co-workers, and would have required the Labor Department to increase its outreach to employers to help eliminate pay disparities. In a world where women are making $1,000 less in their first year out of college, according to the American Association of University Women, it is important to show support for an act that will abolish this discrimination.
