Two important equal pay bills head to the Senate floor Tuesday (3/27)! We need 20 votes to advance these bills to the House floor. Help us get the votes by contacting all members of the Senate with just one click!
Letter to legislators:
I am asking you to vote in support of equal pay legislation on the Senate floor Tuesday.
SB 117: Requires state contractors to comply with the Equal Pay for Women Act (currently only applicable to state agencies).
SB 149: Prohibits employers from requiring prospective employees to disclose their previous wages.
These are simple measures, but they are a major step towards narrowing the gender pay gap in Louisiana. We owe it to the women of this state, and particularly our girls, to ensure fair pay.
Thank you for your consideration,
