Equal Pay for Equal Work- It’s a No-Brainer
Equal pay for equal work is simply a no-brainer. That’s why the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act was signed into law on January 29, 2009, ensuring that those facing pay-related discrimination can report unfair treatment at any time. In continuing the fight for pay equity, Senator Wyden is a proud cosponsor of the Paycheck Fairness Act, which would help address the income disparity between men and women in America.
Senator Wyden knows that there is more work to do. He continues to work to ensure that all workers, regardless of gender, receive fair pay for their hard work. In Oregon women still earn 16.1% less than their male counterparts- and that just isn’t right. Every single American deserves to be able to walk into work every day without the fear of discrimination.
