Today, women earn an average of $0.77 for every $1.00 earned by a man for the same work - an average of $11,000 less per year. We need to change this!

This situation is unacceptable! Congress, if it doesn't want to continue its tenure as a completely unproductive legislative body downright hostile to the rights of the American worker (the common person) must pass a bill such as the Paycheck Fairness Act to establish and preserve equality in the workplace!

Actually, THIS has been a problem since we women first "got the vote"! Women have never received the recognition of the work they do or have done!! In MANY cases, not only do women support or help to support their families...but ALSO continued to TAKE CARE of their families with the cooking, cleaning, laundry, shopping and God knows what else--->while holding down a full time job! Some of these women, if not most hold jobs that men hold as well; but they receive MUCH LESS wages than their counter-parts! It's time we women stood up to the monopolization that the male of the species has held for hundreds of years and receive the wages we so deserve!! I urge ALL women to sign this and pass it on to everyone in your address book, urging them to sign as well!
