Joint Letter: Bring the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act to a Vote
Over 110 children’s advocacy organizations sent this letter to Majority Leader Chuck Schumer urging him to bring the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act (S. 4431) to a vote.
Excerpt from the letter:
The Pregnant Workers Fairness Act is a common-sense bill that has long enjoyed bipartisan support and currently has the votes to pass on the Senate floor. We understand that the number of Senate legislative days in this work period is limited and that more time is needed to reach a bipartisan deal on the Respect for Marriage Act. This creates a window to bring the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act to the floor. We believe the time to act is now.
