WE BELIEVE IN EQUAL PAY FOR EQUAL WORK.


Earlier today, Senator McCain said, "I support equal pay and I have the record to prove it."
 
Interesting.
 
A little more than 2 months ago, Sen. McCain skipped a vote on fair pay legislation and afterwards said he would've voted against it.  When asked why, he dismissed the equal pay legislation saying
women simply need more “training and education.”
 
Tell Senator McCain that equal pay for equal work is the American way. Ask him to "pay up" and co-sponsor the Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, Senator McCain!
