Transcript of Paycheck Fairness Act

The Paycheck Fairness Act is an update to the Equal Pay Act of 1963.
Not only would it allow for equal pay for women as men but would enforce it unlike the equal pay act.
Pros
Women will be payed the same amount of money as a man for the SAME job.
Women would earn thousand of dollars more per year.
What does it have to do with government?
Citizens have the right to equal opportunities
The nineteenth amendment grants every citizen the right to vote no matter their sex
IF women have civil rights then why are we still facing this injustice of inequality?

The Paycheck Fairness Act has been rejected 4 times since 2012 by the republicans. The most recent being Monday, Sept. 15, 2014.
Republicans only see the cons to the Act and believe women can not benefit.
Although Republicans oppose the Act, Democrats strongly favor it.
Women Voters
Although this is a major civil issue for women NO major media is promoting the issue
The media is not allowing people to find out about it
People are not being well-informed showing how citizens are not involved or interested in government
Lawmakers are not serious about establishing equal pay
Members of Congress claim to support fair pay for women, yet the Senate failed to pass the Paycheck Fairness Act
Government is NOT taking a stand on this serious problem
Republicans claim democrats only want to pass the Paycheck Fairness Act in an effort to gain women votes for the November and 2016 Presidential elections.
Political parties are always seeking to gain women voters support since their votes can keep them in office.

Details on the Vote
The Paycheck Fairness Act needed at least 60 votes in Senate
52 people voted in favor while 40 voted otherwise
EVEN WORSE!
African American women and Latinas are paid about 64 and 56 cents for every dollar paid to white men.
