American Bar Association President Bob Carlson sent a letter earlier this month to members of Congress expressing support for the Paycheck Fairness Act. The bill aims to update and strengthen the Equal Pay Act of 1963, which was passed by Congress expressly to prohibit “discrimination on account of sex in the payment of wages by employers.” The ABA believes the Paycheck Fairness Act will make critical, common-sense improvements to the law so the country can continue to make progress in eradicating the persistent problem of gender-based wage discrimination.
