EQUAL PAY/Economic Justice
NOW advocates for wide range of economic justice issues affecting women, from the glass ceiling to the sticky floor of poverty. These include welfare reform, livable wages, job discrimination, pay equity, housing, social security and pension reform, and much more.
The Paycheck Fairness Act would be a critical step forward in closing the gender wage gap by prohibiting gender-based pay discrepancies and banning workplace policies that penalize employees for sharing wage information. Although the bill has been introduced in every Congress since 1997, Congress has yet to pass the Paycheck Fairness Act into law, thereby further contributing to the loss of hard-earned wages for millions of workers and families.
— Kirsten Gillibrand, U.S. Senator for New York State
