“Tomorrow is the day the Senate will vote on the Paycheck Fairness Act (S. 3220)! You’ve called before, you’ve emailed, but today needs to be the crescendo. We have one last chance to tell our senators that women and families need fair pay, and the Paycheck Fairness Act is a critical step forward!
CALL TODAY! Call 1-888-876-9527 and follow the instructions to be connected to your senators’ offices.
Use the talking points below to frame your message to the staff member who takes your call. If you can, include a short personal story about fair pay — it’s a powerful way to make sure your voice is heard. Then, call back to be connected to your other senator!
-As a constituent, I join with the American Association of University Women in urging you to cosponsor and support the Paycheck Fairness Act (S. 3220) when it comes to the Senate floor tomorrow.
-This common-sense bill would deter wage discrimination by closing loopholes in the Equal Pay Act and barring retaliation against workers who disclose their own wages to coworkers. Without this bill, employers can penalize and even fire employees for talking about their salaries. This egregious practice leaves workers in the dark, preventing them from ever finding out about pay discrimination in the workplace.
-Thank you, and please ask the senator to support the Paycheck Fairness Act.”
This would be historic, amusing and bewildering.
