PEARCE: "I UNEQUIVOCALLY BELIEVE IN EQUAL PAY"

Apr 8, 2014

Washington, DC (April 8, 2014)--Rep. Steve Pearce released the following statement in recognition of Equal Pay Day.

"I unequivocally believe in equal pay for equal work.  The United States is the land of opportunity—opportunity for ALL.  Race, gender, age, or religious beliefs should never impact or infringe upon one’s chance at the American Dream.  When my wife and I owned our business, we practiced this concept.  We must ensure that our children and grandchildren are able to live in a free society where individuals are rewarded based on their merit."
