Eleven states have enacted paid-sick-day pre-emption laws since 2011. New research from the National Partnership for Women and Families shows that six more states are considering kill-shot bills. The NPWF has found that some of these bills have even more extreme consequences than just banning paid-sick-day requirements...
While women now comprise roughly half of the American workforce, they make about two-thirds as much as men and have far less upward mobility, as evidenced by the fact that less than 5% of Fortune 500 companies have female chief executives. Even the new crop of high-profile female CEOs seems to be drastically underpaid relative to their peers.
For nearly the last year, MTV has been closely studying millennials’ perceptions of subjects like fairness, equality, privilege and discrimination — with a special emphasis on race.

“One just has to be awake and aware to be worried,” said Judith L. Lichtman, a senior adviser to the National Partnership for Women and Families, one of several liberal organizations dedicated to issues like women’s rights, gay rights and the environment that are trying to refocus Democrats’ attention on the courts.
"Any wage gap between men and women has impacts for families," said Vicki Shabo, vice president of the National Partnership for Women and Families, a Washington-based advocacy group. "It's dollars and cents. It's putting food on the table. It's being able to afford mortgage and rent payments."
“If that person must go to work to put food on their table, that means they are risking their own health and the health of their co-workers,” said Vicki Shabo, director of work and family programs for the Washington-based National Partnership for Women and Families.
Debra Ness, president of the National Partnership for Women and Families, told USA Today the new data may trigger a sea change in health care. “I think this is very exciting and it has been a long time coming,” she said. “I think it’s part of a much larger cultural change in health care… There are a lot of times people think they’re doing the right thing, but until they step back and see the data and compare to others, they may not realize they are consistent with best practices or their peers.”
“Mothers and fathers are trying to put food on the table and give their children a better life,” says Vicki Shabo, director of work and family programs for National Partnership for Women & Families.
The Paycheck Fairness Act would have shielded workers from retaliation if they discuss their salaries with coworkers. Employers would have had to “prove that pay disparities exist for legitimate, job-related reasons,” according to the National Partnership for Women & Families. In addition, the bill would have closed disparities in the legal remedies available for violations of the Equal Pay Act, so workers could claim the same kinds of damages provided under other wage discrimination laws.
"I think this is very exciting and it has been a long time coming," Ness said. "I think it's part of a much larger cultural change in health care."
"Los salarios injustos provocan un daño real y duradero a las mujeres, a las familias y a nuestra economía.

Ness, presidenta de la National Partnership for Women & Families.
The National Partnership for Women and Families said in a statement after the vote, “It is inexcusable that partisanship and baseless attacks have blocked this common sense bill.”
“The wage gap is simply unacceptable. We must do much more to end discrimination so we no longer deny millions of women the fair pay they need and deserve,” Debra L. Ness, president of the National Partnership for Women and Families said in a statement.
“Unfair wages cause real and lasting harm to women, the families they support, and to our economy,” said Debra Ness, president of the National Partnership for Woman and Families.
