Wage discrimination against women is a huge problem in our country--costing the average woman $10,622 per year. Today, the average full-time working woman only makes only $0.77 for every dollar a man earns, but it's much worse for women of color. African American women only make $0.62 on the dollar, and Latinas only make $0.54.
Worse, loopholes in labor laws allow employers to fire women who try to fight this and expose wage discrimination.
This is unacceptable in America in the year 2014. The Paycheck Fairness Act, currently in front of Congress, can fix this. Can you sign this petition telling Congress to pass it right away?
