“I’m proud to join Congresswoman DeLauro in reintroducing the Paycheck Fairness Act. Yesterday, the City of Phoenix City Council voted unanimously to pass an equal pay ordinance and address the wage gap in our city. The pay gap between women and men in Arizona is 16 cents for every dollar and it has real life implications for women working hard to ensure the American dream for their families,” said Congressman Ruben Gallego. He added, “Until the federal government takes action, cities across our country are taking matters into their own hands and doing what they can to ensure equal pay for equal work. It’s time for Congress to step up and pass the Paycheck Fairness Act. This is a no brainer that will help ensure the Equal Pay Act achieves its objective - guaranteeing that women who are working hard to move ahead are fairly compensated for their hard work and paid the same as men in the workforce doing the same job.”
