Kathleen Rice on Civil Rights
The 2009 Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act was a crucial first step toward economic fairness & empowerment for women in the workplace. But the gender pay gap has been hundreds of years in the making, and Kathleen knows that in order to close it once & for all, we need to pass legislation that extends these protections to all employees.
Kathleen will work to pass the Paycheck Fairness Act, which will close loopholes and bolster federal enforcement of equal pay laws, impose stricter penalties for employers who violate those laws, and prohibit retaliation against workers who discuss their pay.
