Two years ago, President Obama signed the Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces Executive Order, which continues to build on the momentum of other actions the President has taken to promote equal pay and protect the rights of workers. The Executive Order is especially important to women, because it includes paycheck transparency measures that will help employees of federal contractors identify pay discrimination and wage theft. But the rules implementing the Executive Order still haven’t been finalized—and time is running out.
Tell the White House and Department of Labor to act quickly to finalize these rules and help achieve fair pay for women.
To the White House and the Department of Labor:
I'm writing to urge you to act quickly to finalize the regulations implementing Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces Executive Order. The Executive Order makes it clear that businesses that have the honor of doing business with the federal government must treat their employees fairly and remedy any major violations of the labor laws, including equal pay laws.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
