Obama signs Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act

for-all-of-us

A few minutes ago President Barack Obama signed the Lilly LedBetter Act.

This bill extends the statue of limitations for workers and makes it easier for employees who have been discriminated against based on race, gender, national origin or religion to sue their past employer (notice they don’t mention sexual orientation). Currently, the Federal Government prevents discrimination in their government offices and hiring practices but  the House of Represenatives  is working  on a national law.

Lilly Ledbetter stood up and fought for all of us and for that she deserves our respect and admiration and don’t you just love that name, Ledbetter, the name says it all.
