In January, IWPR was very pleased to have our decades of work on pay equity recognized when IWPR’s president was invited to the White House signing ceremony for the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Restoration Act. Then in November, the Honorable Seth D. Harris, Deputy Secretary, U.S. Department of Labor, testified on Capitol Hill in support of the proposed Healthy Families Act, which seeks to provide personal, family, and sick leave. This is a piece of legislation that IWPR played a significant role in initiating.
