Women deserve equal pay. Period. CONGRESSIONAL CANDIDATE JENNIFER WEXTON.

Today’s the day, David -- Equal Pay Day.

...a day that symbolizes how far into the new year women must work to earn the equivalent of what their male counterparts earned in the previous year. The fact that we’re still having this conversation and women are still having to ask for equal pay for equal work is absurd. We deserve better.

In the General Assembly, Jennifer passed an equal pay bill in committee, only to have it be killed by Republicans once they realized that it added teeth to Virginia’s equal pay law. The bill would have added hourly workers to Virginia’s equal pay statute and required employers to pay attorney’s fees and costs in addition to money damages if they were found to have discriminated based on gender.

If we want to see change, we have to elect people to Congress who are committed to progress. We can count on Jennifer to fight for us.

Thank you,
Team Wexton
