Solis and Ledbetter Talk Paycheck Fairness
Last week, Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis sat down with Lilly Ledbetter--the former Goodyear employee who stood up to pay discrimination, and won! (eventually). The topic of discussion? The Paycheck Fairness Act. As Solis wrote in her blog post,
Like many women in today’s workplace, she was faced with a difficult choice. She could remain silent or she could speak up for herself, and in so doing speak out for countless other women across the nation who may have unknowingly faced a similar situation. I am grateful she had the courage to pursue the latter.
Organizations across the U.S. are asking women to follow Lilly's lead and stand up to paycheck UNfairness by contacting their representatives, urging them to pass the Paycheck Fairness Act. To take action, visit one (or more) of these websites:
