Sign if you agree: Women deserve equal pay

It’s 2016 and America still has a gender pay gap that isn’t shrinking fast enough. For full-time work, the average woman makes only 79 cents for every dollar a man makes.

It’s time to end this gender discrimination.

Now more than ever, we need to elect women to Congress who will fight for equal pay to support women and families across the country.

Over and over, we’ve seen Republicans vote against key legislation to make progress on equal pay. Republicans in the Senate have opposed legislation like the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act and the Paycheck Fairness Act.

Equal pay for equal work is an issue that affects working families in every state. By expanding economic opportunity for women, we can guarantee more income to households across America, lifting up entire families. When it comes to supporting key efforts to shrink the wage gap, EMILY’s List candidates are up to the task.

Equal pay is long overdue, and families can’t afford to wait any longer. Help us elect pro-choice Democratic women to Congress who will fight for America’s families and make equal pay a reality.

Sign on if you agree: Women deserve equal pay.
