(Un)Equal Pay Day

(Un)Equal Pay Day
It is simply wrong that 52 years after President John F. Kennedy signed the Equal Pay Act into law, there is still a pay gap between women and men in America. Tuesday was Equal Pay Day, which symbolizes when, more than three months into the year, women’s wages finally catch up to what men were paid in the previous year. Equal Pay Day is a day to call on America’s leaders to ensure that hard-working women receive fair compensation for their work. Ensuring equal pay is in the best interest of American families, our country, our economy and our future. 

Democrats have long been committed to empowering women to receive just compensation for their work – and to have the resources needed to fight back when they encounter injustice in the workplace. With women on average making 78 cents to every dollar earned by men, and with women of color earning far less, we have more work to do. Now is the time for Congress to pass the Paycheck Fairness Act, a pillar of When Women Succeed, America Succeeds economic agenda for women and families.

Casework Spotlight

My office was able to assist a constituent who contacted my office regarding a missing IRS refund. After contacting the Taxpayer Advocate Service (TAS), my staff was informed that since the office requested a rapid refund, her funds were sent to a third party bank for processing. TAS provided the bank name and account number, which was relayed to my constituent. Since it was a large refund, the bank had placed a hold on the account. However, my constituent was able to resolve the issue and receive her sizable refund without further delay.
