Herrell Votes Against Bipartisan Legislation Protecting Equal Pay for Women and Minorities

Yesterday, Representative Yvette Herrell voted against the Paycheck Fairness Act, which would help reduce the wage gap by giving all workers more power to fight for equal pay, especially women and minorities who have long faced wage discrimination.  This passed the House on a bipartisan vote. 

Herrell also opposed the Workplace Violence Prevention for Health Care and Social Service Workers Act today which would protect nurses, physicians, social workers, emergency responders, and other health care workers from violence in the workplace This passed the House on a bipartisan vote of 254 to 166.

“Once again, Representative Herrell is putting her personal politics ahead of the needs of hardworking New Mexicans,” said DPNM Chair Marg Elliston. “Instead of standing up for health care workers and women – particularly women of color – who are being cheated out of fair wages, Herrell is falling in line with Republican leadership. New Mexicans deserve a Congresswoman who will fight for all of us, and Yvette Herrell has failed to do that time and time again.”
