A while back, the Supreme Court ruled that people could not sue for back pay if they determined they had experienced pay discrimination over six months after the fact. In my opinion, this is one of the worst decisions to come out of the Supreme Courts in the last few years, and they've had a few humdingers. Effectively, it allows employers to get away with pay discrimination if the workers don't talk amongst themselves about how much they are being paid. Many workplaces expressly (and I think legally) forbid workers to talk amongst themselves about their pay.

Anyway, Congress will be voting on whether to adopt a law that overturns this ruling as soon as next Wednesday. I urge to you take a moment and sign this petition with the ACLU:
