On June 10, 1963, President John F. Kennedy signed the Equal Pay Act into law. But, 48 years later, women still face discrimination in the workplace — women like Betty Dukes, who brought her case against Wal-Mart all the way to the U. S. Supreme Court in March.
We’re keeping a close eye on the outcome of her case, which is expected any day. We want you to be among the first to know, too! www.nwlc.org/fairpay
The Supreme Court’s term is winding down, leaving only a few more weeks for the result to be announced. Will the Court allow women employed at Wal-Mart stores across the country to join together in a class action lawsuit?
With full-time working women still earning only 77 cents for every dollar earned by men, the Supreme Court’s decision in the Dukes case will have a huge impact on our work to close the wage gap. Don’t miss out: sign up to be among the first to learn about the Court’s decision. And once we know the results, we’ll need your help to spread the message via Facebook, Twitter and email.
We promise to give you a heads-up just as soon as we can — significant cases like this don’t happen every day, and we hope that you will continue to spread the word about this important case and stand with the women of Wal-Mart! The decision is expected sometime this month. The clock is ticking — make sure you don’t miss the big news. http://action.nwlc.org/site/R?i=oruVRq_y3jxuMJ-3gA7IPg..
