DemDaily: If you care about Women …

April 12, 2016
... then join me in Signing the Petition!
Today is Equal Pay Day, which symbolizes how far into the year women in the United States must work to earn what men earned in the previous year.
Women currently make 79 cents to a man's dollar, and the wage gap is even worse for women of color: African-American women make 60 cents, and Latinas make 55 cents for every dollar a white, non-Hispanic male makes.
Asian-American women make 90 cents to the dollar; they are more likely to have advanced degrees than white men, but are still paid less.
Take action today! Sign the petition to Senate Majority Leader McConnell and House Speaker Ryan: Vote on the Paycheck Fairness Act
The Paycheck Fairness Act would further close the legal loopholes standing in the way of wage equality for women and prohibit retaliation against workers asking about wage practices.

Tell Senate Majority Leader McConnell and House Speaker Ryan to schedule a vote on the Paycheck Fairness Act. Because equal work deserves equal pay.
