Today, Congresswoman Lizzie Fletcher (TX-07) voted in support of H.R. 7, the Paycheck Fairness Act. This legislation closes loopholes in the 1963 Equal Pay Act to help eliminate the gender wage gap and ensure women can challenge pay discrimination and hold employers accountable. Congresswoman Fletcher is an original co-sponsor of the Paycheck Fairness Act, which passed the House of Representatives with bipartisan support, 217-210.
“Today’s vote was an important step forward for women in the workforce. Equal pay for equal work is good for families and for our economy, especially as we recover from a pandemic that has disproportionately impacted working women,” said Congresswoman Fletcher. “I am proud to be an original co-sponsor of this legislation, and I am glad to see it pass the House today.”
