Update: Paycheck Fairness Act

From PathWays PA (http://www.pathwayspa.org):

Last week the Senate had an opportunity to move the Paycheck Fairness Act forward but was unable to do so. The Paycheck Fairness Act would deter wage discrimination by closing loopholes in the Equal Pay Act and barring retaliation against workers who disclose their own wages to co-workers. Without this bill, employers can penalize and even fire employees for talking about their salaries. This egregious practice leaves workers in the dark, preventing them from ever finding out about pay discrimination in the workplace.

Despite this set back we will continue to work toward equal pay for equal work for all women! Thank you to everyone who took action on this issue and we look forward to when we will be calling on you to do the so again!
