Statement on Fair Pay Act

Statement

Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) today issued the following statement after Senate Republicans blocked consideration a bill that calls for equal pay for equal work:

"At a time when women make an average of 77 cents for every dollar earned by men, I am disappointed that every Republican in the Senate voted to filibuster the paycheck fairness act to insure equal pay for equal work.

"I am proud that Vermont has been a leader in the fight for paycheck fairness and hope we can be an example for the rest of the nation. This is a struggle that has gone on for decades. We have made some progress, but today's vote is another reminder that we have a long way to go."
