Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2007

Some of you may remember from June when I wrote about the Supreme Court decision Ledbetter v. Goodyear Tire, which made if much more difficult for employees to sue their employers for pay discrimination in the work place.

Pamela forwarded me an email from Civilrights.org which has a heads up on the congressional move to wipe out the Ledbetter decision.

If you care about equal pay for equal work, etc., you should contact your Representative and Senator about this. The Ledbetter Fair Pay Act would go a long way towards restoring the ability of victims of pay discrimination to sue under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

    Has Bush threatened to veto this yet?

  2. Sounds too good for Dubya not to threaten with a veto.
