Well shame on him/her!
We’ve made it past the first vote (if you remember my blog about it last month) and the results weren’t so positive. Now we’re gearing up for round two in the Senate on the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, which would have a major impact on the lives of women who’ve been subject to pay discrimination. Today, women in this country are still paid only 77 cents for every dollar earned by men! WHAT? And we still have to pay the same gas prices?! Nutso!
With 57 Senators voting in our favor, we are now just 3 votes away from moving the bill forward. Women everywhere need your help to make fair pay a reality.
The National Women’s Law Center is reaching out to Senators in key states who voted the wrong way the first time around. If you live in one of the following states, at least one of your Senators voted against the bill: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Indiana, Iowa, Florida, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Texas, and Virginia. Please e-mail that Senator now.
If you don’t live in one of those states, please forward this eCard to your friends, family, and contacts who do.
Thanks. Be Active, yo. Hold your elected officials accountable to represent YOUR beliefs and YOUR interests!
