#womensMARCHflorida MARCH 13: CALL TO ACTION: Tell your Florida Senators and Representatives to END THE GENDER PAY GAP NOW!
On Tuesday, Women's March Florida will be organizing a network of rallies across the state in support of Florida HB319/SB410: The Helen Gordon Davis Fair Pay Act. Today, we ask you to CALL to show your support. These bills would specify which factors employers can use to decide to pay employees differently, such as education or experience based on seniority or merit, and would prohibit employers from screening job applicants based on prior wages. It would also bar employers from taking retaliatory action against an employee who discloses their wages to a coworker and prohibits employers from discrimination towards employees based on their sex or gender identity.
It is time for Women's March Florida to take our message from the Women's Strike on March 8 and turn it into ACTION! This bill is a great step towards greater economic justice and equality for women across Florida.
STEP ONE: Call any/all of the House Careers & Competition Subcommittee Members and Leadership to get HB 319 heard!
Encourage your local Representative to co-sponsor as well!
Sample script: Hello my name is _________ and I am a member of Women's March Florida. I am calling to ask if you plan on supporting HB319: The Helen Gordon Davis Fair Pay Act. I find it unacceptable that in 2017 women are still paid less then men for the same work. Our entire economy is hurt if an entire group of Floridians are not being paid for the quality of their work, especially the single mothers and families stricken by illness or unemployment or tragedy that relies on a female breadwinner. Please vote YES on HB319.
