The decision in Ledbetter v. Goodyear involved the interpretation of a federal statute-not the Constitution. That's why Congress has the authority, and the responsibility, to correct the Court's error and strengthen Americans' ability to recover wages that they have been unfairly denied. Will you join the petition calling on congressional leaders to support legislation to correct Ledbetter v. Goodyear?
The Ledbetter legislation, the "Fair Pay Restoration Act," will be introduced in the Senate as early as tomorrow by Sen. Kennedy. The House legislation, the "Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act," was passed by the Education and Labor committee at the end of June.
