Should Women Be Paid the Same As Men? Congressman Heck Says No.

Las Vegas, NV – Today is the 7th anniversary of the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, legislation that protects women against illegal pay discrimination. But don’t expect Republican Congressman Heck to be celebrating, because he’s voted against women receiving equal pay for equal work every time he’s had the opportunity.

Congressman Heck has voted three times against women receiving equal pay for equal work,” said Sarah Zukowski, spokesperson for the Nevada State Democratic Party. “The truth is: Congressman Heck has failed Nevada women by voting to restrict our access to health care and voting against us receiving equal pay for equal work.”
