Sen. Dean Heller (R-Nev.) introduced an alternative to the Paycheck Fairness Act on Tuesday.
Heller introduced the legislation, the End Pay Discrimination Through Information Act (S. 3256), the same day the Senate is set to vote on a procedural move on the Paycheck Fairness Act (S.3220). The Paycheck Act, backed by Democrats, creates a federal grant program to improve salary negotiating skills for women as well as aims to strengthen protections for women filing gender discrimination lawsuits concerning salaries.
“Let me be clear, pay discrimination based on gender is unacceptable,” Heller said Tuesday. “Despite the political rhetoric around here, everyone agrees on this fact. The question is, will Paycheck Fairness Act actually address workplace inequality? And the simple answer is no.”
