Your voice for equal pay
The Paycheck Fairness Act has had a long history of working its way through Congress. The bill, which at last count was short of the 60 votes to override a filibuster in the Senate, would broaden the Equal Pay Act of 1963 with a slew of measures targeting barriers to information about wage discrepancies and access to negotiating skills for higher wages and offer protection from company retaliation. Today, contact your senator and voice your support for equal pay, regardless of gender.

When: All day
Where: Your phone or email
How much: Priceless
