Women Unite For Equal Pay

Sen. Claire McCaskill is joining fellow Senate female Democrats tomorrow to renew their call for passage of the Fair Pay Restoration Act.

The Hotline notes that while the contentious presidential primary has divided the women of the Senate, the Fair Page Restoration Act (S. 1843) has brought them together.

Sen. Barbara Mikulski is set to speak on the issue at 9 a.m. central tomorrow, followed by Sens. Patty Murray, McCaskill and Klobuchar. The legislation would ensure equal pay for women and minorities in the workforce and overturn a Supreme Court ruling that workers must sue for pay discrimination within 180 days of the pay-setting decision.
