If you haven't already heard...

The Paycheck Fairness Act would deter wage discrimination by updating the nearly 50-year-old Equal Pay Act, in part by barring retaliation against workers who disclose their own wages to coworkers. It's ridiculous, but no federal law broadly prohibits employers from penalizing and even firing employees just for talking about their salaries.

Remember Lilly Ledbetter? She was told on her first day of work at Goodyear never to discuss her salary with anyone. It wasn't until she found an anonymous note in her locker years later that Lilly realized she was being paid as much as 40 percent less than her male colleagues in the same position. This is exactly why these pay-secrecy policies that punish employees and help hide discrimination need to go!

Every call counts! More calls mean more pressure and better results. Please take action today by calling 1-888-876-9527.

Thanks for your help!

Question

Why do you ladies ignore applying to jobs as truckers, mechanics, roofers, miners, garbage-persons and sewer workers. The pay is great.
