Equal Pay Day

Blog for Fair Pay

Today is Blog for Fair Pay Day! With good reason. From the National Women's Law Center:
[White] women in the United States are still paid only 77 cents for every dollar earned by men. And for women of color, the numbers are even worse. African-American women earn 63 cents and Latinas earn 52 cents for every dollar paid to white men.

The Senate is currently considering the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act and is voting on it next week. Please go here and fill out the petition to encourage your Senator to vote for workers' rights.

Even if you're not a woman, I bet you know one that needs to be insured of proper compensation for all the ass-busting she does. DO IT!
