Tell the Senate: Close the Gender Wage Gap By Passing the Paycheck Fairness Act
This petition had 2,977 supporters
One number says it all: women today are paid only $0.77 to a man's dollar. That's just not right!
Since 1963, when women were paid 58.9 cents for every dollar paid to men, the wage gap has improved but at a rate of less than half a cent per year!
At this rate, the gender wage gap would not close completely until today's kindergarteners are ready to collect Social Security benefits.
Do you want to wait another 60 years until women are finally paid a fair wage?
We sure don't. And with your help, we will make wage discrimination a thing of the past.
The House has already passed critical legislation called the Paycheck Fairness Act which would make it harder for employers to hide pay discrimination, help train women and girls about salary negotiation, support government collection of critical wage data, and reward employers that have good pay practices.
With the midterm elections quickly approaching, it's time to urge the Senate to do the same! Send a clear message to your Senators that you demand fair pay now!
