Equal Work Deserves Equal Pay

Rachel Maddow 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 Just a few weeks ago, Republican Governor Scott Walker repealed Wisconsin's Equal Pay law.

Take action today! Tell your Congressman to pass the Paycheck Fairness Act.
Dear [Your Members of Congress],

Recently, the Governor Paul Walker of Wisconsin repealed the state's Equal Pay Law and House Republicans voted nearly unanimously against the Lilly Ledbetter Fact Pay Act.This is unacceptable.

[Your comment will be added here]

Equal work deserves equal pay, and Congress should pass the Paycheck Fairness Act immediately.

Thank your for your consideration.

Sincerely,
