Support a Bill to Eliminate Unequal Pay for Women in Gender-Based Jobs

October 18, 2017

Please join me in cosponsoring H.R. 2095, the Fair Pay Act of 2017.  The 1963 Equal Pay Act (EPA), the first of the great civil rights statutes of the 1960s, was successful for close to 20 years, but it is too creaky with age to be useful today.  It is long
time to amend the EPA to reflect the new workforce, in which women work as much as men.

SIGN-ON: Emergency Aid for Public Education in Puerto Rico/US Virgin Islands

October 16, 2017

Congressman Robert C. “Bobby” Scott, Ranking Member of the Education and Workforce Committee, is leading a letter (text pasted below) to the Administration concerning supplemental appropriations to restart public schools in Puerto Rico and the US Virgin
Islands. Recent reports indicate that the majority of schools in Puerto Rico remain without electricity, less than half have running water, and less than 200 (out of nearly 1200) are open. Combined, public education in Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands
supports nearly 400,000 students and 40,000 school staff. While migration to the US mainland is expected, Congress and the Administration must do all it can to support students and school faculty to live and learn in affected areas.
