Fight for equal pay for equal work

Fight for equal pay for equal work

      Organizing for Action

President Obama's Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act took a big step toward making sure every worker in this country receives equal pay for equal work. But there's still an unacceptable pay gap in our workforce.

Women make 77 cents to men's dollar. Over two thirds of American families with children rely on women's income to make ends meet. This huge pay gap affects more than just the women taking home the paycheck, it hurts families and communities, too.

In his State of the Union address, the President said that any economy built to last encourages the talent and ingenuity of everyone who's willing to work.

Stand with the President and join the call for our businesses to provide fair pay, regardless of age, gender, or ethnicity.

      Another thing, women aren't the only ones being "underpaid" everyone in America thats not a government employee, lobbyist, or big business owner is underpaid. This equal pay for equal work thing shouldn't just pertain to women, it needs to be for ALL underpaid/underprivelaged/over-controlled Americans.

      If you agree that us taxpayers/civilians/workers need to have our power back, and our rights restored, you need to check out my petition too:

      We pay for our own security and safety in this country, and its no longer serving us the way it was origionally intended to. We should be able to get trained an educated in that service, since we already pay through the teeth for it and we become statistics of it. This is the #1 problem with the spending and outcome/return from our taxes, we need to be able to take, first hand, part in these services since our lives inevitably depend on them.
