WASHINGTON – Congressman John K. Delaney (MD-6) has signed on as an original cosponsor of the Paycheck Fairness Act, which was reintroduced today by Senator Barbara Mikulski (MD) and Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro (CT-3). The Paycheck Fairness Act is designed to address the wage gap between men and women and strengthen the Equal Pay Act so that women receive equal pay for equal work.
“Equal pay for equal work is fundamental to our nation’s values,” said Congressman Delaney. “When women aren’t paid fairly it hurts individuals, hurts families and hurts our nation’s economic potential. It is fitting that this legislation is being filed this week, as Congress debates the House Majority’s Budget, which includes a number of harmful cuts to important programs that help working women and their families. The Paycheck Fairness Act, which will lead to more fairness and justice, is an example of what our priorities should be in Congress. I want to thank Senator Mikulski for her years of continued leadership on this issue. I am proud to stand with Senator Mikulski, Congresswoman DeLauro and the women of America in support of this bill.”
