In a 5-4 decision last year, the Court ruled that the women of Wal-Mart could not band together as a single class to challenge discrimination in pay and promotions. The National Women's Law Center and advocates across the country have pushed Congress for a solution. Recently, Congress offered one!
The Equal Employment Opportunity Restoration Act of 2012 would remove the obstacles the Supreme Court placed in the way of ordinary Americans seeking their day in court. It offers a clear path for women workers to come together as a group to challenge discrimination. And it would make sure that no employer is too big to be held accountable.
Individual workers — many of whom live paycheck to paycheck — should not be required to stand alone against some of the largest corporations in the world to end discrimination. This bill recognizes the reality of workers' lives and offers an alternative.
Tell your Members of Congress to stand by the women of Wal-Mart by co-sponsoring the Equal Employment Opportunity Restoration Act of 2012.
Dear [Decision Maker],
I urge you to stand up against workplace discrimination, by becoming an early co-sponsor of the Equal Employment Opportunity Restoration Act of 2012.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
