Take Action - Equal Pay and Minimum Wage Bills Will be Voted on Soon
Last week, bills that would raise the minimum wage and support Equal Pay for Women by stopping pay secrecy and protecting discussion about wages made it out of a committee and now the entire Louisiana Senate will vote on them soon.
At the same time, Louisiana continues to have one of the worst gender pay gaps in the country. In this state, women make 68 cents on the dollar compared to men. It’s even worse for African American women at 48 cents.
It’s time to pay women what they are worth and deserve. It's time to demand economic justice for Louisiana Women!!!
NOW is the time to call and email your State Senator to ask for support for Equal Pay and raising the Minimum Wage. Ask them to support all 4 bills to bring economic security to women and their families. Find your State Senator
What should you say?
I urge you to vote for ALL bills that will work to achieve equal pay by protecting pay discussion and prohibiting factoring in prior salary history, and to raise the minimum wage for all workers.
