Paycheck Fairness Act: Equal Wages for Women

Paycheck Fairness Act: Equal Wages for Women

Based on a 2013 statistics of U.S. Census Bureau, a full-time working woman only earns 78 cents per every dollar paid to men. The payment goes down to 64 cents for an African American woman and 56 cents for Latinas. In line with female empowerment, the Paycheck Fairness Act will help to bridge the gap of unequal wages for women.

  • What’s the Purpose of the Bill.

    Sponsored by U.S. Rep. Rosa DeLauro and U.S. Sen. Patty Murray, the Paycheck Fairness Act aims to update and eliminate flaws from the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938 and the Equal Pay Act of 1963. As a nonprofit organization in Atlanta, Georgia, supporting equal rights for women, we support the push to enact this provision, which requires employers to base the wage differentials on factors other than sex.

  • What Provisions Offered in the Bill.

    Paycheck Fairness Act is beneficial not only for employees but also for employers and enforcement agencies. For employees, this bill will protect them against retaliation for discussing salaries with colleagues. It will also create a negotiation skills training program for women and girls, like the mentorship program in Georgia.

The House of Representatives already approved the bill. It has now been read the second time and placed on the calendar in the Senate.

We hope that women, no matter the race, receive fair wages in the workplace as we are also funding education for young women.
