Just last week, the Paycheck Fairness Act was passed by the U.S. House Committee on Education and Labor!  Next, the bill is headed to a floor vote.
The wage gap exists in every state, regardless of geography, occupation, or education. Moms and women of color are hit hardest by unfair pay practices and on average, women individually lose out on over $10,000 each year due to the wage gap.
The Paycheck Fairness Act would close loopholes in the Equal Pay Act, combating wage discrimination and strengthening workplace protections for women.
