Lee Fisher on Civil Rights
Women are paid on average only 77 percent of what men are paid for the same work; for women of color, the gap is significantly wider. In the Senate, Lee will fight to ensure women are fairly compensated for their work. He is a strong supporter of "Equal Pay for Equal Work," the simple premise that women and men doing the same work are entitled to earn the same pay. Lee supported the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act signed into law by President Obama to ensure that victims of wage discrimination can effectively challenge unequal pay. He also supports the Paycheck Fairness Act, which would provide more effective remedies to victims of wage discrimination by enhancing enforcement of equal pay requirements.
