    Wisconsin Governor Repeals Equal Pay Law

    Wisconsin's Equal Pay Enforcement Act, which made it easier for workers to sue their employers for wage discrimination, was passed in 2009. Recently, the state's Republican-controlled legislature voted to repeal it -- and late last night, Gov. Scott Walker signed the repeal. Sara Finger of the Wisconsin Alliance for Women’s Health calls this a "demoralizing attack on women’s rights, health, and wellbeing," adding, "economic security is a women’s health issue."
