Fair Pay in NYS

pencil-survey_Full1

 

Per AAUW data, NY-23 is near the bottom of the list of NYS Congressional districts in order of fair pay. Tom Reed clearly has work to do if this is to be improved. Reed often talks about “fair,” but seldom if ever about “fair pay.” Tom often says he “cares,” but does he care about pay equity? Notice the low wages and huge gap in NY-23.

The AAUW asks: Pass the Paycheck Fairness Act (S. 862/H. 1619). This much-needed update would close loopholes in the Equal Pay Act of 1963 by creating incentives for employers to follow the law, empowering women to negotiate for equal pay, and strengthening federal outreach and enforcement efforts. New York: Tell your member of Congress you want fair pay!

*The above congressional districts represent the 114th Congress. **The pay gap figures are from 2015, the most recently available data.

    Rep Tom Reed “cares” about paycheck gaps? Here’s another voice on that topic ( 2014)

    It’s another good reason to vote Tom Reed out – he’ll try to block it again – leaving :
