Who Would be Against Equal Pay for Women?

The 'Skelos 8' that's who.
We posted the video from the Albany Times-Union yesterday of the empty seats of Skelos and the gang while Sen. Craig Johnson brought the bill to the floor. The only reason Fuschillo, Marcellino and the others were missing was because they didn't want to be caught voting 'NO' on equal pay. And why would they not want to vote 'YES'? Call the numbers below and ask the senators why they will not support S03936: NEW YORK STATE FAIR PAY ACT.

(516) 766-8383
Hannon: 516 739 1700
Marcellino: (516) 922-1811
Fuschillo: 516-882-0630

And call Sen. Craig Johnson to voice your support for his legislation:
(516) 746-5923

Here is the Summary of the Bill:
provides that it shall be an unlawful employment practice for an employer to discriminate between employees on the basis of sex, race and/or national origin by paying different wages."

Can't see anything wrong in this unless Skelos, Fuschillo, Hannon and Marcellino support discrimination in the workplace.
The Senate passed a bill to "commission a study" on equal pay issues which is less comprehensive than the one they ignored.
