Huffington Post: It’s Time For Congress To Act On The Paycheck Fairness Act

This week, the U.S. Supreme Court blocked up to 1.6 million women from suing Walmart for sex discrimination in a class action lawsuit. The court’s 5-4 conservative majority sided with business over women, claiming that Walmart’s well-documented wage and hiring disparities are coincidences and not a result of a persistent culture of discrimination.
