National Women’s Law Center  produced this new video  as part of their ongoing efforts to pass the Paycheck Fairness Act , which People For the American Way supports, along with American Association of University Women , American Civil Liberties Union , National Committee on Pay Equity , and hundreds of other organizations  and countless advocates nationwide.
Equal pay in America needed to be put back on track after the Supreme Court’s devastating Ledbetter v. Goodyear ruling, and the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act  answered that call – as the first major milestone of the Obama Administration. Still, this new law cannot on its own do the job of eliminating the wage gap. Additional tools are necessary to bring equality to the workplace and prevent further disturbing incidents like the one that befell Lilly Ledbetter. Especially in this unsteady economy, people who are struggling to pay their bills shouldn’t have to worry about whether they are being discriminated against in the workplace. We need the Paycheck Fairness Act .
It was way back in January 2009 that the House passed  the Paycheck Fairness Act . Please join National Women’s Law Center  and Women Are Not WorthLess  in calling on the Senate  to do the same and send this important legislation to the President’s desk.
