P&J Legislative Action Alert: Tell Your Senator: Vote "Yes" on the Fair Pay Restoration Act

This week, the Senate will vote on the Fair Pay Restoration Act (S. 1843), which reaffirms civil rights threatened by a recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling, Ledbetter v. Goodyear. This ruling:
Makes it virtually impossible for women facing pay discrimination to take legal action against their employers.

Threatens justice for anyone discriminated against on the basis of race, ethnicity, religion, disability, or age.

The House has already passed a bill that remedies the problems caused by the Court's ruling. Now, the ball is in the Senate's court.

Contact Your Senator TODAY!

Tell your Senator to vote for the Fair Pay Restoration Act (S. 1843) and make this bill a law.
