Oregon’s U.S. Senators Jeff Merkley and Ron Wyden joined their colleagues in introducing the Paycheck Fairness Act, legislation that would strengthen the Equal Pay Act of 1963 and guarantee that women can challenge pay discrimination and hold employers accountable.
“Equal pay isn’t just an issue of fairness, it’s also about economic security for working families,” Merkley said. “It’s simply outrageous that a giant pay gap still exists. We need to get serious about our fight to take on all forms of discrimination, and ensure that women receive the same pay for the same work. I stand with women in Oregon and across America in demanding equal pay, starting with the passage of the Paycheck Fairness Act.”
