Paycheck Fairness Act Long Overdue

March 28, 2019

WASHINGTON, D.C., March 28, 2019 – Following Wednesday’s House vote to pass the Paycheck Fairness Act of 2019, AFJ President Nan Aron released the following statement:

“Passage of the Paycheck Fairness Act is long overdue, and we applaud the House for voting in favor of it. It’s just unconscionable that in 2019 we still have so many barriers standing in the way of pay equity for all workers regardless of gender or race. This bill would help break down some of those barriers, and we urge the Senate to pass it as well.”
