At a time when families are struggling mightily in the worst economy this nation has seen in decades, it is more important than ever that we reject wage discrimination and ensure that victims can seek redress in the courts. We urge the Senate to reject any weakening amendments, and complete work on this bill very quickly so that President Obama can sign it into law next week.
Equal pay for equal work is among the most fundamental of American values. Enacting this legislation will help stop wage discrimination and advance fair pay in America.”
The National Partnership for Women & Families is a nonprofit, nonpartisan advocacy group dedicated to promoting fairness in the workplace, access to quality health care and policies that help women and men meet the dual demands of work and family.
