Fair Pay Act. Senators say, "no thanks" this Thanksgiving

In the midst of a supermarket excursion with the kids, in preparation to feed over two-dozen family members for Thanksgiving, which is no small feat, Terry forwarded me an outlandish email. We're sure (whether you're a Butterfly Mom from "Down Under" or from Denmark) you, like us, are completely outraged to learn: The Paycheck Fairness Act came to the Senate floor days ago and was defeated! On the grounds of sexual orientation we are to get paid less for the same job as men. Period. According to MomsRising.org, “The Paycheck Fairness Act was (and is) sorely needed to update the Equal Pay Act, which passed in 1963, and doesn't reflect modern realities of a labor force that's 50% women. Right now women make 77 cents to every dollar made by men and the pay gap has been narrowing by less than half a percent a year. That means at this rate the pay gap won't close until 2057. Forty-seven years from now!” If you’re a U.S. citizen, join us as we personally help this stellar organization by signing on to their short letter to all the Senators who voted against the Paycheck Fairness Act asking them to explain to their daughters, and ours, why in 2010 women don't deserve the right to equal pay for equal work.

We’ve got to stick together, we women, and help one another out! Know that if we could, we’d have you ALL over for a big fat turkey dinner (or tofu dinner if you happen to be vegan). We give thanks to you this Thanksgiving. Not to the Senators - to you, the members of Butterfly. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. SMOOCH.


Warmly,


Bradi and Terry
