Will Republicans Support The Paycheck Fairness Act?
This would make it easier for women to challenge bosses who pay them less based on gender.
The bill probably won’t pass; it ran into a wall of GOP opposition in 2010. But I’m told Dems will move to make it an issue in multiple Senate races…
With the Paycheck Fairness Act gaining a higher profile, the question will be how much longer Mitt Romney can avoid taking a position on it. The interesting wrinkle here is that Romney recently endorsed the concept of pay equity in general when he was questioned about Lily Ledbetter. But he hasn’t said whether he would have signed Lily Ledbetter, and he hasn’t taken a position on Paycheck Fairness, even though it will now be voted on in the Senate.
