Manchin Fights to Close Wage Gap

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) today issued the following statement after the Senate failed to secure enough votes to move forward to debate and pass the Paycheck Fairness Act.

"The fact that working women in West Virginia earn around 70 cents to every dollar a man makes just defies common sense," Senator Manchin said. "My very first vote in the Senate was for paycheck fairness, and I will continue to fight to close the wage gap because people should earn the same pay for doing the same work. It's past time that we correct this unfairness to make sure that women are paid what they deserve."
