Following the Supreme Court decision in Wal-Mart v. Dukes, a devastating 5-4 decision in favor of the defendant, Wal-Mart, it is time for Congress to take the steps necessary to help close the wage gap that all female employees face in the workplace by effectively addressing wage discrimination and eliminating loopholes that have undermined the Equal Pay Act's effectiveness. The Paycheck Fairness Act would deter wage discrimination by closing loopholes in the Equal Pay Act and barring retaliation against workers who disclose their wages to coworkers.
In this tough economy, more and more families are counting on women’s earnings. Unfair pay practices make things even harder, especially for those families who rely solely on female earnings. Please voice your support. Send a message to your Members of Congress today by completing this form. For more details about the Supreme Court's decision, visit http://www.nwlc.org/walmartdecision.
Dear [Decision Maker],
I urge you to support pay equity, by becoming a co-sponsor of the Paycheck Fairness Act. The Paycheck Fairness Act would deter wage discrimination by closing loopholes in the Equal Pay Act and barring retaliation against workers who disclose their wages to coworkers.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
