Target: John Alario, Jr. President of the Louisiana State Senate
Goal: Force private employers to verify that women are paid the same as males for comparable work.
The wage gap between men and women could be narrowed by a bill currently before the Louisiana state Senate. Currently, Louisiana ranks lowest in the nation for pay equality with women earning 65 cents on the dollar compared to men. The legislation, if passed, will force private employers with more than 20 employees to document that men and women doing comparable work receive equal pay.
Demand equal rights be protected by the immediate passage of this legislation.
Dear Mr. Alario,
The Senate is set to vote on legislation that would close the gender pay gap in Louisiana. Currently, women in Louisiana make 65 cents on the dollar compared to men, making the state last in the nation for pay equality. Senate Bill 254 would begin to close this gap by requiring private employers with more than 20 employees to to verify that men and women doing equivalent jobs are receiving equal pay. State employees do not deal with the same pay gap as they are already covered under other laws.
We demand this legislation is passed immediately to protect the rights of all female workers.
[Your Name Here]
