Udall Statement on Equal Pay Day

 

Today, Mark Udall released the following statement to recognize Equal Pay Day:

“As a father and a husband, it saddens me that women are still getting paid on average 77 cents to the dollar that men get for doing the same work,” Udall said.  “Our economic recovery can only be as strong as the productivity of our workers.  When half our workforce is unfairly told their work isn’t as valuable as that of their male counterparts, we cripple our own progress.  I support working to end discrimination against women in the workplace so that my daughter and future generations of women will be properly compensated for their contributions.”
