If you eat one thing today, eat fresh corn because it’s in season now and it’s like DAMN. If you call one person today, call your senator about the Paycheck Fairness Act.

4 Jun

Okay, so actually I really hope you eat more than just a cob of corn today, and I think it would have more of an impact to call both of your senators (if you live in the U.S.).  But either way, the corn is juicy and it’s impossible to ensure fair wages in the workplace without payroll transparency!  Which is what the Paycheck Fairness Act calls for (the transparency, not the juicy).

So please, take a few minutes to chow some cobs and call your senators to support the Paycheck Fairness Act today.  But preferably not at the same time.

You can call 1-888-876-9527 to get easily connected to your senators.  Native Georgians like me, please confirm or deny my suspicion that you have to have a ridiculous name to be a Georgian senator.  Saxby Chambliss? Johnny Isakson?? Chocoball Mukai?!  Okay, one of those isn’t real.

Earning less than someone doing the same work is buuuuullshit.
Call your senators today.

    The normal call to action on something like this might be ‘contact your senators!’
    But in light of the Senate vote happening tomorrow, it’d be a lot better if you called them, as opposed to waiting to find a stamp you can unstick from that thing it got stuck to before mailing a letter.
