JOIN THE EQUAL PAY FOR WOMEN CAMPAIGN

 

    It’s hard to believe, but it is true. More than fifty years after the 1963 Equal Pay Act was signed into law, pay discrimination in the workplace still exists in America.

    Senator Martins is supporting the Women's Equality Agenda, which has been passed twice by the Senate, which includes measures to ensure that women receive equal pay for equal work.  Republicans and Democrats both support this measure, along with other measures such as new protections for domestic violence victims, stronger penalties for human trafficking, and preventing employment discrimination for pregnant women and those with families.  However, a faction of Assemblymembers are holding these measures hostage for political reasons.

    Please join Senator Martins in supporting this legislation and calling on the Assembly to stop playing partisan games at the expense of women.
