Action Request: Petition
Location: United States

Petition: Equal Pay for Equal Work!
Target: U.S. Senate
Sponsored by: AAUW (American Association of University Women)
...........
On average, women in the U.S. continue to earn only 77 cents for every dollar earned by men. Just one year out of college, women working full time already earn less than their male colleagues do, even when they work in the same job. Decades of earning lower wages result in significantly lower Social Security benefits, retirement incomes, and pensions, leaving women with less money to retire on.
.........
The Paycheck Fairness Act, a much-needed update to the 46-year-old Equal Pay Act, would create stronger incentives for employers to follow the law, empower women to negotiate for equal pay, and strengthen federal enforcement efforts. Without the Paycheck Fairness Act, women will continue to be silenced in the workplace - prohibited from asking about their employer’s wage practices or talking about their own wages with coworkers without the fear of being fired, which prevents many women from discovering they’re being discriminated against in the first place!
..........
This recession makes pay equity even more important.
With women now making up half of the workforce and more and more families relying on a woman’s paycheck to make ends meet, ensuring that women are paid fairly is even more critical.
Urge your Senator to support the Paycheck Fairness Act today!

SIGN PETION: "Petition for Equal Access in USA to WW2 HOLOCAUST Education"

submitted by Ge 
thepetitionsite.com

It was pointed out to me today that in the USA many of the SCHOOLS choose to not instruct USA children...that the WW2 HOLOCAUST took place.
____________________
Be it resolved that we, the undersigned, agree that all Americans should work to enhance and support WW2 HOLOCAUST education in our nation's schools. To that end, we call on the U.S. Department of Education and all American leaders to:
-Mandate that the WW2 HOLOCAUST be part of every child's core curriculum;
-Ensure that the WW2 HOLOCAUST is included as a part of a balanced education addressing the whole child, to prepare them for the concrete thinking of GOOD WILL and EQUALITY along with NON TOLERANCE of RACISM as well as SEXISM and other NOTRORIOUS CRIMES by the NAZI PARTY including the INSISTED UPON PRACTISE OF ONLY the Hitler APPROVED RELIGION by the NAZI PARTY as necessary for success in the global community of the future;
-Ensure qualified HISTORICAL EDUCATED teachers and sequential curricula be recognized as the basis for providing all students with substantive education in WW2 HOLOCAUST and other HOLOCAUSTS;
-Ensure programs in HISTORY of HOLOCAUST of WW2 provide rigorous instruction, monitor progress and performance through meaningful assessment, and take place within a structure of accountability to school officials, parents, and the community.
