Even when working the same hours and similar jobs, women still make only 77 cents for every dollar men make. It's unfair to women-and it's unfair to Maryland families, many of which depend on two incomes.
Congressman Steny Hoyer believes in equal pay for equal work, and he's fighting to make it a reality. He helped pass legislation that requires companies to pay women the same wages for the same job as men. And he helped pass legislation that makes it easier for women to stand up to pay discrimination.
Congressman Hoyer is committed to the fight for equal pay, and he'll keep fighting for equal compensation for Maryland families-because our families deserve it.
