The Hill: As we mark Latina Equal Pay Day, Congress must pass the FAIR Act to narrow the wage gap

December 8. 2022


Policy Director & Deputy Legal Director Jessica Ramey Stender had an op-ed published in The Hill today, co-authored by Mariko Yoshihara of partner organization California Employment Lawyers Association:

Key passages:

[L]et’s not just talk about the need for stronger equal pay laws, but about how our existing equal pay laws are being enforced, or not. The reality is that employers are thwarting our equal pay laws through an increasingly common strategy — forced arbitration.

On Latina Equal Pay Day, let’s not just demand stronger laws and better policies, let’s demand our right to enforce them. Congress must pass the Forced Arbitration Injustice Repeal (FAIR) Act now to ensure our equal pay laws are meaningful and effective.
