Save the date - Blog for Fair Pay Day...

Blog for Fair Pay Day!

Women in the United States are still paid only 77 cents for every dollar paid to their white male counterparts.

African-American women earn 63 cents and Latinas earn 52 cents for every dollar paid to white men.

Gosh, do I feel lucky.
Blink.
Okay, so it’s time to take action.

A bill awaiting a vote in Congress would help women fight for fair pay. Advocates are pushing for the Senate to vote by the end of April, to commemorate Equal Pay Day on April 18.

Raise your voice in support and sign up to post to your blog on Friday, April 18, about the importance of fair pay for women.

Another reminder why it matters who gets elected . Judges . I wonder how much of that decision was bad law-writing by Congress, and how much of it was the authoritarian corporatists among the Supremes.

ps Is Hillary on board? :)
